  1. This was over on another forum from his friend and a member . " A Very sad news today I got, early yesterday morning my very good friend André died of a heart attack. Retired from Bombardier a little over a year and a fine modeler his entire life, he was a great inspiration for many of us at the club. He leaves behind his longtime compagnion Danielle Mateau and her daughter. ''You left us way too soon my friend and we will miss you deeply'' Dan." Andre was a gifted modeler and his models were STUNNING to look at.he was only 60 years old and was a member here on ARC living in Montreal (known as DORA9 ) . His Articles | Large Scale Planes: https://www.largescaleplanes.com/articles/?act=filter&field=author&data=Andre+Dorion I will miss him .MY condolences to his family friends and those who knew him. Rest in Peace Andre. Blue Skies. HOLMES

  10. So there's a GoFundMe for PAUL FISHER and quite a bit has been raised.. Gentlemen you can donate anonymously or not.. if you can but if you can't then that's okay too. Here is the link etc and Paul's comments are copied from Facebook. hope he and Susy are doing well and prayers go out to them. Fundraiser for Paul Fisher by Kevin Futter : Paul Fisher Fire Relief https://www.gofundme.com/paul-fisher-fire-relief So, we've managed to reach $15,000 in donations in around 2 days of fundraising! The level of generosity shown by Paul's fans, friends, followers, and the general scale modelling community has been absolutely astounding, and Paul is incredibly grateful. For those who don't follow Paul on Facebook, here is his message: "Hello to all our friends and family around the world, Susy and I cannot thank you enough for the incredible generosity you have shown us in out time of need, we are humbled and elevated all at the same time....Can't say yet what comes next, but now that we are safe in Colorado and online again I will try to post regularly.As far as we can tell at this point both our home and the workshop were destroyed by the fire, more info as I get it, but it will be awhile before that Firefly comes out!We love you all, and again, thank you with every wag of our collective tails for all you have done to help!!!!" Please continue to share the campaign link to anyone you think might be able to help. And a sincere thanks to everyone who has been able to donate so far. You guys rock!
