    Hey, all,

    For those who don't know, Strike Models is rolling up the carpet and website sometime in the next few hours. I've placed my final order and somehow find myself wishing I hadn't waited so long. (If only because I missed out on Alaska... :p)

    Anyway, I just thought I'd take a moment and say Thank You to Steve and Keri for all they've done for us. You've done so much to support the hobby over the past several years. I guess it's a shame we didn't quite reciprocate.

    Here's wishing you both the best in life as you move forward.

    Chris

    Best wishes to y’all. Anytime you are in San Diego... mi casa es su casa. It’s hard to believe it’s been almost 10yrs since I met you. Thank you for what you did for the hobby!

    Thank you, everyone. It's been hard to say goodbye to the business -- packing it up sure brings back a lot of memories. We look forward to being able to participate in future events one day.

    Stephen, I'd still like to buy back the molds I made for the Canarias Class CAs: hull, tower bridge, trunked funnels and turrets. Maybe a few of the many other hull molds I made too. PM me if interested.

    I'm really sad to see you guys go, you were always so helpful and patient with me. And I loved your products. What will you do with your remaining stock that went into storage? Will there still be a chance to purchase some of it from you?
