1/19/19 - Just a brief further comment regarding the update immediately below; my intention is not to blame the customers caught in unfortunate situations created by the poor selling practices employed by some sellers, it's only natural to seek help where you can most likely receive it. The hope is that the responsible person will bear the resulting cost going forward.

On a lighter note, I am offering another discount period for purchases from my Library page until 2/20/19, take 25% off any book or books selected for purchase.

1/16/19 - Beginning a new year seems like a good time to raise the warning flag regarding some model resellers that are doing a real disservice to the hobby in delivering damaged models to their buyers. I raise this issue again having had four instances in the last several weeks where a buyer has purchased a Kohs & Company model from a secondary market reseller who ultimately delivered a damaged model. Three damaged models came from the same 'professional' reseller so it seems these situations were no accident. The buyers naturally contact me asking for help in making the model that they paid good money for, typically more than the original selling price, whole and operational. If the sellers are not held responsible this practice will most likely continue at which point it will be time to start naming names publicly. I do maintain an inventory of parts for all of the models that I have produced. The intent of this inventory has been to have replacement parts available for models that owners have been using and require routine maintenance, not for rebuilding models that have been misused or shuffled through numerous hands on the resale market. If you are interested in purchasing a model from a past production and I do not have that model available from an existing owner, feel free to contact me for some guidance on who to deal with so you can avoid the problems I have been seeing.

Another issue that has come to light is the practice that one big name reseller seems to use in representing Kohs & Company models for resale, incorrect or made up production data regarding the rarity of a particular model or version seemingly attempting to make it more desirable. The only production data that I have made publicly available is that associated with model versions that are deemed limited production versions from the outset of a project. The total production for any of my projects is never a secret, but the number produced of various common versions typically has never been shared. In addition, there are a number of special variations of only one, two or three models that have been built which have never been publicly documented, all of this data will be made available at some point in the future. Again, if you have questions about a particular model you are interested in, contact me before buying.

1/01/19 - Happy New Year to all!! With you, I am looking forward to an exciting year of new developments and projects that promise to be our best efforts to date and that will be a serious accomplishment. My network of designers and builders have been gearing up to launch the new projects that have been mentioned on this website and although the brass modeling environment has never been more challenging we are all up to setting new standards and delivering the best models ever. Be sure to stick with us in the months ahead to see what develops!
