I am looking for a node set up that would give my model the look of resin.
Which is basically a dull/glass/yellow look.

I have looked for a resin Preset, but have not found any.

Any pointers in how to achieve this would be appreciated.

You could try the dielectric material with data from this site to get started and tweak until you're satisfied.

Thanks for the tip.

In the chart it states Epoxy Resin 3.4 Min 3.7 Max.

Which part of the dielectric node does this refer too.

if you have 9.6, maybe the carpaint material could be made to work, long as the reflection properties are kept suitably low. just thinking...long as you're not referring to an amber type of resin.

I thought Epoxy Resin would be a common material like glass or Metel that a lot of people have used in a node set up. I guess not, but thanks anyway.

Sorry about the bad link (I've been doing that a lot lately... Medi8or got it right though).

Any luck with getting the look right?

Still playing, but as you have pointed out, the dielectric material gets you half way there.
