Nice little review. I'd agree with the resurgence of big scale bike kits,I'm very much looking forward to the MPC reissues and hoping that maybe we can get a new tool of another vintage Honda or any good bike that could be "Cafed". I for one would welcome a Triton with open arms, or maybe a vintage Ducati. I'm just dreaming now,time to get back to reality. -_-

In Topic: What are the chances Modelhaus will find a buyer for their business?

I think it's really simple. The Holthaus family has said that they won't, especially now, create a website. If you don't trust the feedback from folks on one of the biggest modeling websites on the Internet (many experts here I would say) or won't trust google images, then it's probably best you stop hoping for any of that to change. Don't order any.

But one things for sure...you guys are missing out!

Their products will be missed more than any other resin company I know.

It's not that I don't trust people on here,it's just that every individuals perception of quallity is different. For example if I were to poll every individual about the quality of their product from ModelHaus on a scale of 1-5 most people would give 4's or 5's but say I was to do the same polling with the scale of 1-100,the results would lie between the upper seventies to perfect one hundreds. If I ask someone who's been building resin transkits for the last 30 years compared to someone who's been building six months the answers would vary.

Mainly OOP and subject matter. Also if your going to get one I highly suggest getting one that's opened so you don't get one with some gnarly tire melt.

Why not go with a very patriotic AMC

My point is,sometimes i dont know what i want before i see it. And even when i see it,i do not always know what it`s called,it`s name 

and number,let`s say a set of wheels and tires. So if i go on Modelhaus and look for it,the description is completely greek for me,because i dont know what it`s called,and there is pictures either. If no one see a problem with this i guess its just me then. 


Here is a great album:  http://public.fotki....us_resin_items/

Exactly.Being as I've never seen any of their stuff in real life or directly from their website I've never intended to purchase anything from them. Even if they did have that one part/kit I needed I would still want to see what it looks like. Besides as nice as everyone here is I don't really think I'd trust them enough with a "Ya I built one fifteen years ago and I think it was decent" to throw down $80, if I'm going to throw down the money from a full eight hours of work I don't want to regret because I didn't know what I was getting.
