Skylake Models

I received a letter from the post office stating there are changes to Priority mail, all packages now have more tracking info, include insurance, and there is a delivery map showing 3.4.5. days to each location, good news maybe the packages will get to their destnation now.
I am re stocking kits and will give it another go. I have some new kits as well and should be back open in a week or two. Hopefully the days of multiple lost packages each month are over.

A few of the new kits will be a Fokker D8, Flybaby monoplane, Fleet biplane, and a few more.
Waiting on a wood order, they take some time to cut and ship but the wood quality is worth the wait.

You might consider changing the banner page for your site to let people know you'll be back up. That "we're down, eta unknown" has been there for a LONG time.

I guess that since there aren't any responses, Skylakes is no more.

I would guess you're right. Last I heard a month ago was that he was coming back up "soon". This kind of reminds me of the first time it disappeared.

I am surprised as well, from his last statement. I noticed that he was on RC Groups today(if you click on his name and go to his blog site on RC Groups, you'll see when he was last on.)
It is strange, and annoying, but he isn't the first to make a claim and date and then not respond. But to have the site disappear and not have him make an announcement here.....??!!
Oh well, I'm on to making my own and buying from Aero Werkes and MidKiff.

Well Dorme,
You can't go wrong with Dave or Mike. They are reliable. Too bad really about Skylake. I've seen several of his models built that flew well.

Agreed on Skylake Models. Mine have flown well and others that I've seen as well. Hopefully, he might sell his product line to someone who will bring it back if he can't. His unusual (in some cases) planes modeled are desired and certainly the color schemes included do a lot to make them wanted over others.
Oh well, as I have seen in the past, when someone comes out with a good product line, you have to jump on it, as you never know how long it will last on the "internets".
BTW, Mooney, I think I met you at Geneseo12. I had the TBD with the torpedo.
