The owner passed away several months ago and the site was closed down.

Am I correct that Phil was the owner - if that is case he wasn't very old - he was a great guy to do business with and very skillful in the tank upgrades that he did.

very sorry to hear this !!!

I ordered a few times from Phil (even tanks too) and he was the utmost professional. He will leave a HUGE void in the hobby for sure.

I have been kicking around the idea of offering tanks for sale, doing the same service he performed and I need to look into what stock I could order and maintain.

.....it will be a big loss for the RC tank community, with the passing of Phil, this is the first i have heard of it, and was also wondering why his website was closed....he helped me quite a bit with aftermarket parts and upgrades to my Bulldog, he was always curteous, very helpful on the phone and by email, and i am glad i saved all his very informative instructional emails to me...Phil, you made a big mark in your world!

Phil

I agree - he modified my HL Tiger 1 with a new smoke unit and added a flash to my barrel. The work was of a very high quality and he was always very helpfull when I had questions. He will be missed !!

He was key to promoting this part of the hobby and helped us gain a vision for what was possible with these tanks!

He will be sorely missed for sure!
