Here are links I have bookmarked to pictures of Modelhaus items.


A Special Thanks goes out to John Sharisky and Tom K for posting them on Fotki






I've asked Don about posting pictures on his site and he told me it was because of the cost and time to photograph.

I already have more of his kits than I will ever be able to build!

Shasta included.

I just thought I'd add that I've never bought Hendrix stuff from Star Models (Steve Kohler)

I've bought from Hendrix directly.

Back in the better days of Ebay you could get the sellers address to send payment.

I watch Ron's Ebay auctions and order directly from him.

Hey, thanks for posting pics of the actual product.

Most of my Modelhaus purchases have been from Googled pictures of the actual cars.

I've been buying from Don since the late 80s and have NEVER been disappointed.

I've bought from other resin sellers, but none have compared to Modelhaus.

It's going to be a sad day when he decides to retire. So I've bought more as monies permit.

I bought the "Get Smart" kit when it first came out. This was the 4-cylinder "Alpine".

The Tiger kit was later released.

I'm watching an old episode of "Get Smart" and noticed at the beginning of the show Maxwell Smart is driving a Tiger!!

 You can see the "Tiger" script on the front fender!!

This means the original issue of this kit was wrong!!

Other than that, I like your build!!

In Topic: Why not these things

Alright, it's time for my 2-cents. I didn't read ALL of the arguments on here, it was just too much to read.

Months ago when the former Hobby Heaven was listing on Ebay, I found 2 ads for AMT kits that were going

to be released, but never were.

Must have been sometime in the 70s. I would have bought both kits.

T-816 Link-belt Speeder Power Shovel (Sept) Yr??

#5601 Ford/ Garwood Refuse Truck (July release) Yr??

I asked about them and found out they were scheduled for release, but never made it.

I'm wondering if the dies were made? Licensing problems? AMT was already struggling? 

Does anyone know anything about them?
