How can you make such a suggestion, I mean, talking about giving up your 1/144th scale line, when we see people's range of models on their webb sites etc, so many of them are from your masters, that must be so rewarding for you. You have made so many 'rare
' or even 'not available' models available, and so many model makers are grateful for that.
I believe that our scale is largely for model makers who want to have a large range of models but don't want to have to have a full size hangar to keep then in, and you help to make that possible.
I believe that I have the best 1/144th scale collection of Meteors anywhere in the world, last year they made a national magazine and and you made that possible, I couldn't have done it with out your resins, and my models can't compare with those beautiful A4s etc that you have shown us recently.
Even if you did give up on 1/144 your name would still be mentioned on this site for years to come, of that I am sure, so come on, get your reading glasses out and make a start on another 'little' gem.
Best regards Terry
Even if you did give up on

With the current market I thought that I might be able to stimulate
some business by announcing the upgrade of a few of my kits. I have
made panel lines on an ALPS printer for a few of my favorites. They
are a little more obvious than scribed lines but add considerably to
the finished model. In addition I now offer certain models with metal
props and undercarriage. The price obviously has to be raised. The new
(upgraded) models now sell for $15.00 USD plus postage. As always you
don't pay until you receive and have a chance to approve of the model.
Upgraded kits are--- T-6/SNJ/Harvard, and the Sea Fury, single seat
and 2 seat. That's all for now. We'll see how they sell.
I am seriously considering retiring my 1/144 scale line. I recently
sold a resin 1/48 scale F-100D model for about 70 times the price that
I receive for the 1/144 scale ones. It doesn't take a genius to do the
math on that one! I am taking 4 of my F-100 models to a Super Sabre
Society reunion in March. If I get the orders that I expect I may have
to prioritize them.
