Midway Models still in business?

Does anyone know if Midway Models is still in business? Their website is up, and it does explain that they are limited, but I have tried to contact them via email,( no phone number on site) and I never receive a reply. I am in desperate need of a Goldberg Sailplane kit, which they offer. I know a few other companies produce a short kit, but I,ve built them and was not happy with the grade of balsa. Has anyone out there ordered from them recently?

Penn Valley Hobby Center I seem to think bought the reduced size Midway models offerings.... I'm not sure now if PVHC is still in business ??? I could be wrong on both counts though

best regards,

jeff

I ran into Penn valley at a recent swap meet. Still in business but the brick and mortar store is closed. Adding to their problems the gentleman who set up their web site is now in a nursing home and there are support problems with it so updates are almost nonexistent.

A real shame since with all the inventory they had at the swap meet I'm sure they could sell a lot more with a better site.

PVHC has the nicest folks running a store you could ever possibly hope to meet. Their picture is in the dictionary next to "good Christian people."

Amen to that Andy, no pun intended.
