Amy, I'm very sorry to hear of Harry's untimely passing; I suffered vicariously with him as he fought the cancer, and my heart broke when he succumbed. I thought of him and prayed for him daily, because he was, as Bill Engwer said, the best friend I've never met. We talked, emailed, PM'd, and exchanged messages from time to time, and I always found him to be not only an inspiration but also a fine example of a gentleman worthy of emulation. And such a truly talented man! His models are truly works of art. I have some of his books and have studied the online images of his creations. Having said that, let me weigh in a little on the disposition of his collection and the body of his work. Please, please do not treat his creations as just "things" to sell off, like Ebay fodder. Please don't look at the dollar value they might represent on an online market. His creations are art. Please pursue permanent preservation in a museum so that others may enjoy and venerate his artistry for a long time. Please don't sell them off, to never be seen or displayed again. Yes, there is a widely respected and reputable museum of the model car industry and hobbyists; the International Model Car Builders Museum, located in Salt Lake City, UT. Pay no attention to couple of naysayers, it is a viable choice. Please speak with the driving force behind the foundation that operates the IMCB Museum, Mark S. Gustavson, before you make any final decisions about the disposition of Harry's art. Please check with Gregg Hutchins and Darryl Gassaway. Please check it out. The creations of many notable builders who have passed are preserved and displayed at the museum, and certainly your father's works would have a wonderful home there. God Bless and be with your family in your time of sadness and absence of your father. Godspeed with all you must deal with.
