Bugger. I'm going to be in Az. the week before that...but I can't stretch the trip out that long. Damm damm damm.

All I really need is at least one set (or 3) of their "medium duty truck tires and rims". 

I'd happily pay a generous premium if somebody could grab me a set or several...if any are available.

He was here at the Postal Hall on Saturday, Everything that He had, was double the price of what was listed in the MH catalog, and when down to the last one Zetterman was keeping that one for himself.

Curt, last I knew, Rik Hoving had one he was selling. That was just a few weeks ago. I can ask him for you if you don't have a relationship with him.

I've heard of Rik, if you can ask him and let him know I'm looking for one that would be great, thanx

Curt,

 I just talked to him last weekend at Goodguys.  

Zetterman has no Modelhaus kits or bodies left at all.  None.  Zip.  Zilch.  The DESERT SCALE CLASSIC crowd pretty much wiped him out (last April) of anything Modelhaus of significance.   

He has only a pittance of minor parts . . . then it will all be finite!   And, as Gabe said, expect to pay handsomely.

Sorry no help with the Nash.

Dan

Curt, 

Check my reply to your post.   Alas, no help to be had.

Good luck with your quest.

Dan

Are there any updates on Modelhaus?  Are they shut down forever or will it start up again someday under different owners?

Not getting this Modelhaus thing at all....With all the talent that's out there, not understanding why by now no one has picked up the ball & ran with it?  Not seeing the risk which is the major factor in any start up business..Granted it will take time to build up the product & reputation that Modelhaus had but seems like a sure thing to me......

All you have to do is , come up with the money ( for the purchase , then operating capitol) , have an excellent working knowledge of resin casting , have a facility to move all the molds and supplies to , be able to work on the business 24/7 , have the dedication needed to follow through with the business model they've established and put up with people in general .

Piece of cake .  :lol:

I spoke with Don and Carol personally last week and they are nearing the end of the line for filling the orders received two years ago when they announced their retirement. NO they do not have a buyer for their business yet. I personally wish them the best with their retirement . Super people who produced a Top quality line of model car products I seriously doubt we will ever see the likes of again in our lifetime.
