I was just looking for some hardboard rocket stands. I didn't expect some kind of Spanish Inquisition.

Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!

A Reuben needs no rutabaga or Skoal Spittor juice in order to be swamp-A$$ed. It has all the swamp-A$$ mess ingredients standard. I would not feed rank-A$$ Kraut and ready-for-dumpster corned beef to convicts, let alone anyone I could stand. Total worthless POS sandwich. A turd in a hotdog bun would reek LESS

Yes I guess you were right. Tom must have been feeding me a line. He even said they were going to have a line of model rubber band airplanes. He always was a great guy to work with when we supplied chutes for his kits.
Oh well I have seen many come and go in this business.

The web site's been redesigned and revised sometime in the past few days. Still just one page promising to be back soon. But I guess that's better than no action at all.

Okay gang, has ANYONE seen any positive indication Q-Modeling is actually coming back ?
They have missed SEVERAL re-launch dates, the first of which was supposedly mid-2012, last known supposed re-start date mid 2014.
Website still up and banners still here on main page of YORF.
Have heard several times members have talked to a guy that said they are coming back.
Anybody know anything new, rumor-mill or not ?
I have MY more-accurate-than-not opinion about relaunches.

Was GREATLY surprised on the Semroc sale to a QUALITY person/company and actually have faith in their re-launch.

Q-Modeling and most all others not so much due to consistent OVER-promising and UNDER-delivering.
I think this one is about as likely as Estes relaunching original Enerjet SU F67's and G76's and getting USPS exemption to ship them cheaply.

And then there's FSI, still claiming they'll launch their new product page on 1 Sep 2014: http://www.flywithfsi.com/products.html

I harbor great suspicion toward companies that can't even be bothered to take 10 minutes (if that) to remove a web page that promises something they can't deliver six months later.
