Jeff, I just spoke with John Giegle at the Seattle IPMS show. He told me the contact is at:
masterpeicemodels.com
He said it takes two weeks to fill an order because all orders are cast to order. John does a lot of work for movie special effects among others too, so each peice is cast when ordered.

Thanks Russ ,already got it great deal ,and works like a charm.
Recommend his corrugated metal making tool. And The Small Shop in Washington also sells it,might be quicker from them, plus one can get the lead sheet from them also.

I think that's his wife's paper craft store-- he has a separate operation I believe. Masterpiece has its own web site too.

Yep, that's right-- it's been about a year since I've seen him though. He usually hits the local shows with 300-400 kits from the LHS he runs.

I believe they are still in business, I used to know the owner when I worked in a LHS (John Geiger I think). He attends all the PNW shows as a Vendor, and we have the Seattle IPMS show this Saturday, April 21st. If I see him, Iíll see if heís got your order.
