...das kam grade aus Übersee geschwappt:
AND A GREAT CRY ERUPTED FROM THE MASSES GATHERING IN THE SQUARE, AND THERE WAS MUCH GNASHING OF TEETH, AND THE SOUNDS OF SHOTGUN SHELLS BEING CHAMBERED ECHOED ACROSS THE LAND AS DARKNESS FELL UPON THE MODEL BUILDING WORLD: I received an e-mail from my sales representative at one of my larger distributors this morning; he was forwarding an e-mail from his management team to him. This is what they sent to him and he in turn sent to me:
“I received a call from Testor in advance of their formal announcement, which was actually good of them to do that:
“They are dropping these brands entirely:
“Pactra: all items under this brand, including R/C paints, trim tapes, etc
“Floquil: all items under this brand
“Pollyscale: All items under this brand
“We are not closing anything out at this time, we figure most of it will sell through in a natural progress.
“No other areas of their business are affected.
“This is public information, you can let your customers know this will happen.”
