Hey all,

 

Modelhaus closed?  I went looking for a hood for an old Johan Desoto and their website was closed down..

 

Anyone taking over?  They were my go-to place for replacement car parts

 

Thanks,

 

Cheers,  Ian

Yes, they are closed. The owners of Modelhaus announced their retirement in 2016, and were quickly swamped with orders. They shut down the website and are working through the backlog of orders. From what I have read recently on model car forums, it looks like they are almost done with the backlog of final orders.  It is sad to see them go, they were a great resource for parts, and had interesting kits which they developed.  I am not aware of anyone buying the business yet.

Thanks, Kurt.  That's what I was afraid of.

 

Any idea of a place to find old, obscure car parts?

Sorry for the late response, I did not see your follow up post. You might watch dedicated car forums and see where people are getting parts, but I do not think any one else has obscure parts like that.  You might scour ebay and hope for the best.  good luck.
