Kind of sad and happy I got this e-mail tonight, wish them a blessed retirement.

Dear Carl,
Your Modelhaus Order #23260 has been shipped.

So they got 6 months extra orders than retirement date? I guess some of this is speculators that hope to cash in when they become the only supply. I bought what I could afford for myself.

Sounds like Don & Carol are going to be too exhausted when they do retire, as they're at the mercy of their customers. Oh well, so much for working for yourself.

Probably will be more like a year by the time they finish all pending orders.

I got my order in just before the website shut down, only 640 orders to go before they get to mine, given that #23260 has been shipped.

Only 235 and 556 orders to go before my last two are shipped...

I emailed Modelhaus to give them my updated credit card info. Got a nice response from Carol saying that they'd contact me about that closer to actual shipping time. I was among the last orders in (possibly THE last--July 6 2016) and she said they were hoping to have my stuff out "next spring" (2018). That's okay, not like I don't have six or eight dozen other projects to keep me busy till then! B)

I emailed Don and Carol also Snake to give them updated bank info. Carol emailed me in return to tell me that for my order that was placed on July 1st (the last few days they were taking orders), mine should be in production by late winter 2018. 

I wrote back to let them know that there is absolutely NO HURRY as I've got enough to keep me busy for several lifetimes! :D

BTW, I had almost forgotten what it was I ordered.............it was their '76 Cadillac Coupe DeVille kit, and a set of '60 Chevy Impala wheelcovers. Revell dropped the ball on their '60 Chevy kit by using '59 wheels which are very similar but do have a subtle difference.

I emailed them in June to give them my new address and updated card info...they indicated one order of mine from June 16 should ship around late fall of this year ('70 Mercury Colony Park wagon and some parts).   My last order, from July 3rd 2016 will be sometime next Spring (4 FL Mopies---'57 DeSoto Adventurer, '57 Dodge D501 2dr sedan, '57 Dodge Custom Royal ht, and '60 Plymouth Fury 4dr sedan).
