Does anyone know if Fred's Model world was hit hard by hurricane Sandy? He's in New York and he normally updates his website once a month but it has not been updated since 10/29?

He's at the other end of NY, in Buffalo. I live nearby, I was just there yesterday. He just mailed out another list, and should have it posted online soon (although a lot of stuff on the printed list is already sold).

Ok, thanks Mark.

He told me it's getting harder to find collections of kits to resell, which was the major reason for the lack of an update in November.  Apparently more & more people are selling their stuff on ebay instead.  Wish I would've known about him years ago.

I dealt with Fred when he first started selling kits years ago. He used to come to Toronto to visit and shop and I used to go to Buffalo for the same reason. If you have never dealt with him, I always found him to be an honest, standup guy. If you are looking for something that is not on his list, ask him and he may be able to find it for you.
