    Question Any word on the purchases of Gorilla Motors and Polecat Aerospace?

    Seems like forever and no updates.

    I think they are waiting for Qmodeling to complete the merger. The new company will be known as QGorillaCat Aerospace Modeling and Propulsion. Products will be carried exclusively by Red Arrow Hobbies.

    I hear Performance Hobbies is also merging, but it appears that they haven't delivered yet.

    Not only will QGorillaCat Aerospace Modeling and Propulsion be carrying highly sought after kits, they will be carrying the absolute best paints, adhesives and masking tapes available. I have also heard they will be publishing a book with the proper pronunciation of all rocketry terms such as cato and decal.
