I really haven't heard anything as yet, and I still have plenty of model kits to build yet so no sweat.

Hi,

Wait a minute, I thought this was a Chapter 11 bankruptcy which means re organization etc...

I certainly can't imagine the brand and its rather wonderful line up of kits going away.

If you read the linked articles in the original thread,  it says they are having an asset auction March 26th.

Hi and thanks Rob,

I read some of it but clearly not enough.

I'm actually very sad over this news.

The way I look at it, Revell and Monogram have many owners over the decades, some more successful than others.  The brands will likely live on with new owners, away from the financial incompetence of Hobbico and hopefully in a better position..

I certainly hope they don't go down the same path as Jo-Han!
