Starmax jet model manufacturing status!

Does anybody have any clue as to what the hold up is on Starmax models. Everybody has been out of stock for so long on the Starmax jets. Or is it that people pre-order them even when it says they are out of stock and when companies replenish their stock they have already sold them to pre-orders which means they will never show that they are or will ever be in stock. Maybe some hobby store owner who sells the Starmax jets can feed us information about this. I have been awaiting to get parts for my 70mm F-18 for 6 months. I am about to make my own parts, but then of course when I do that then everybody will have them back in stock. Do I play the waiting game or go for making parts!

Try making your own parts, whats the worse that could happen lol. Plus then it will have your own personal touch......which parts are you looking for?

i had hoped the same since i have a starmax A-1 skyraider . and wanted to get a spare . got tired of waiting for one to show up on bannana hobby and did some research . if you look for any plane made by them you will notice that any of there pllanes are either discontinued or the parts have been out of stock. there are a few of there planes out there and still being sold, but i assume that once those are gone then that will be the last of starmax .im hoping some one will pick up the company and start fresh . since i would love to purchase one of there large biplanes.
Hobbyking still sell the skyraider and the pitts but the shipping is almost 100.00 and i dont want to get a plane like the pitts , just to be out of parts .
cheers

This could be handy - are the F-86 airframes available?

I am looking for the 70mm F-18 Blue Angels wing set and canopy. Let me know!
The Jolly Roger wing set would work as well. I can always paint them blue.
Thanks.
