What happened to British Old Models Company ?
« on: June 19, 2020, 12:22:07 pm »
Anyone know why the Old Models Company UK has vanished from the interwebs? They were saying that their models were made and shipped from the UK , and that they were recently suspending operations due to the pandemic (i.e.- Chinese Wuhan Coronavirus Covid-19 SARS-CoV-2).
Their website is no longer accessible to me in the USA. Did they get DDOS , or simply go out of business , or voluntarily suspending, or ?

No idea.

But it's a nice motor.

I've always admired these since they are something a bit different and regret not getting one years ago. As a nice plus they are made here too. :-)

Hopefully it is just a temporary glitch with the website.
Your nose is before your eyes, so trust it first!
