Default Message about John Pursley / accur8 models

Many of you know John Pursley, expert NAR and Internats scale modeler and currently the talent behind accur8 skin sets and 3D printed parts.

John had a medical emergency and has been hospitalized since Saturday. He is recovering nicely and is expected to be home by mid week. If you have recently placed an order with accur8 please be patient. I am helping him out a little with accur8 but email responses and shipments might be a little slower that usual for the next couple of weeks.

Buzz,

Iíll echo Deanís and Steveís sentiments too. I do not have any of Johnís 3D printed parts, but have several of his wraps. His work is just incredible.
