Went to two more stores today, Randallstown, MD. and Jessup, MD. Got a Blazer, 72 GTO and a couple of 1966 Olds 442's that they'd mis-priced at $2.99! Never found an Exterminator dragster. They both had Bounty Hunters and Malco Gassers, but I already had those. No Corvettes or 51 Chevys. Looks like none of that stuff made it out east.
Has anyone ordered one of these sets lately? I checked the website and they're in stock, but there's no button that I can see to add them to the cart for ordering! It's the same way for all of his parts.
Most of the T-Bird kits I've see have smashed windshield frames. I recently bought a nice sealed 55 kit and when i opened it I found it was broken. The later issue 57 I bought to use as a replacement was broken also!
My last order was over $1,000, barely. It was tough mailing it in since I've never spent that much on model stuff at one time! That's what I get for procrastinating. I didn't buy any of it to resell, BTW. Like a lot of folks, it was mostly parts I need to complete built-ups I had that were missing parts. I don't know how many times I've bought built models that were missing a bumper or tail lights and saying "I can get them from Modelhaus". We won't be able to say that any more and it's a shame. The service they've provided is something we're unlikely to see again. Nothing lasts forever, though, and Don and Carol are great people who deserve a long and happy retirement.
Mailed in my last order yesterday. A whole bunch of parts and a couple of kits. I had to "wing it" it a bit as to the parts I needed, but I think I caught at least 90%. Who knows when I'll get the stuff. It doesn't really matter how long it takes anyway. They will be sorely missed. They're one of the few companies in this hobby that you'd just assume would always be there. I guess in the future I won't procrastinate so much when I see something I want. I did just check and the website was still up. Not sure if they'd honor the orders since it's after the 5th.
I placed an order for two kits on March 12, before I saw the post about the health situation. I received my items, sometime in early May, I believe. I don't feel like that was too long, especially given the circumstances. My guess is that you'll get what you ordered. In the post Devilsnake mentions, it's stated that other members of D.R.A.G. are helping him out.
