Gonna miss you and Fliskits Jim. Don't be a stranger!
Rats!! man I love that little Saturn 1b of yours...what an awesome kit! Best of luck in your retirement and thank you for the wonderful times that your kits provided to us.
I hope we'll have a "Last Time Buy" date, to get those kits we just never got around to...
I would consider it now.
+1, I already received my order.
The outpouring of good wishes has been humbling. (As have the orders... man... lol). I hope to find the time to update the web site and make announcements (formal) on here, YORF and FB. Hopefully this weekend...
If you wait for a formal announcement you'll probably be disappointed. Look what happened when Wes O. (Dr. Zooch) announced he was closing up. Within days vendors were showing "Out of stock" on his kits. I think the run is on NOW.
Without Jim this never happens! From all of us at SCAM thank you for all the help and a great design. We wish you well in your retirement.
Wow! Acme Spitfire on a Sparky or Skidmark? Is that an upscale or stock 24mm?
Up scale, 12” dia.
There already sold out of lots of his models on amazon. I hope to order some of his micro maxx ones. I think there cool. Just hope i can find the mudwasp that one looks so cool.
But Mr. Flis knows this, and is smart enough to only to expect a realistic amount.
I don't know the business, but as I understand it most of the expense in bringing a new design to market is up front. A bullet-proof design that remains safe even with some build errors. Testing. Setup for making the parts that go in the bag. Face card design. Etc., etc. All of that is done with Jim's product line, so it's a bargain to another buyer if the seller is realistic about what he can get. Which Jim is smart enough to be.
Jim, please do find a buyer, if you can. Even if it's not for the whole company intact then just for the marvelous designs and any special tooling and/or special supplier arrangements you use. Whatever you can get for it (them) is more than one gets by just shutting down and walking away.
If you have signed up for the eRockets electronic newsletter you got some good news today on a specific Dr Zooch kit and a tease on some more.
thank you for the heads up! great news! I read their blog post!
Digging through the boxes and storage containers for something else I was surprised at how many Fliskit models I have waiting to be built...not sure which one will hit the build pile - Decaffinator? Spitfire? Praetor? Corona? Tomahawk? So many cool designs from the minds at Fliskits...
I bought the Falcoln Heavy thinking I got the last of the old Zooch kits; now I guess I got one of the first new ones.
