I see Pole Cat Aerospace has a ad on this site. But when you click on it. It goes to Mad Cow and nothing is there. What's up with that?

On the Polecat Facebook page someone asked if there's any news.
One guy said the new owner might be busy with his other job and the Polecat business is on the back burner.
Somebody else said the owner might be having trouble sourcing the tubes.
Unless the owner or someone with direct information chimes in it's all speculation.

This keeps happening, and it is frustrating because I am dying to see those kits available again.

Paper tubes should be no problem getting. Who would pay for the ad if it's a joke?

But kuririn wrote "sourcing" the tubes, not "glassing" the tubes.
So why would they send time and money placing a add? If their not ready to open?

Like I said, if it's not coming from someone with first hand info, then it's all speculation.

I have actually spoken with the folks in question. Apparently the small firm who did fiberglass work for Andy has bought the rights to produce and sell Polecat designs. I personally think this is a good thing as MadCow did not seem at all interested in the more unique Polecat designs. As of a month or so ago they were figuring out how to get things going. Perhaps the advertisement buy is just a way to remain visible or Madcow had bought advertising into the future and the forum is just delivering on what was paid for.

That makes sense.

Good afternoon. I'm excited to say that Polecat is ramping up production again! I have to say we are sorry for the delay in re-opening from when we initially announced in back in March. We ran into some issues on the production side, mainly because we want to re-open with as much inventory as we can. However, we want to thank everyone for their patience all these years! Our website is also almost ready and the link currently goes to the Madcow page but once it launches that will change. Thank you once again and we are working towards a end of July launch!

So what models will you have in inventory when you re-open for business?
