I gonna bet they'll be hobby store exclusives 'cause if they sold these things at Michaels or K-mart, ppl will think these are some lame I-crapp games to shut up their ADHD 4-yr old. Trust me, at AC moore, some kid was lookin at a model kit and though it was some Xbox game... Sad isin't.

The good news is he sold his all interests to the owner of the molding facility that we were using which has all the tooling anyway. It's all still right here in the US. I can also say that the updating and restoration of the 59 Rambler Wagon tooling was completed and is ready to run.
From this point on it's hard to say what will happen, my Product Development deal was with Ernie and ended when he pulled out. I've opened up talks with the new owner and a third party well known to the forum to try to get thing moving again.
In the mean time I would like to wish my friend Ernie Petit a very happy retirement !! Considering he worked until his late 70's and has over 40 years in the hobby industry, he's certainly earned it. I'm just very sorry he couldn't see his last dream fulfilled.

So does this mean IMC is no more?
Ernie held the rights to the Illinois Model Company name .... I can't say if it will be used again, the new owner isn't declosing his plans to me at this time. Let's just say it's all on hold until further notice.
I can say that the new owner has contacts with other industry insiders that we all know and respect that could get things moving again. I would say more but I don't have the OK to talk for any of these parties like I did for Ernie.
