Default Fibreglass specialities

Hi,

Can anybody tell me if Fibreglass Specialities are still in business?
Their web site is still active, but I have tried emailing several times, but get no reply.

My mistake. I was under the impression they were out of business as I saw someone from their company selling off all of their molds and remaining glass parts on Flying Giants.

Often, businesses in our hobby are small one or two man operations or side businesses. It may just take them a bit to get back to you.

A quick and simple email to them, asking if they're in business, they gave this response in just a couple of hours;
"Yes, we are. You can order online"

Fibertech n More had their business up for sale a while ago, I don't see it listed today however.

Tony,, it's a very old post, https://www.flyinggiants.com/forums/...ight=fibertech

Posted on Facebook March 16
Big news from the Planes Gone By Hangar. And, a huge "Thank You" to Rick at Fibertech n More. Planes Gone By LLC has just acquired the complete collection of molds for the production of fiberglass cowls and parts for our TF Reproduction Series. We hope to soon be able to offer these products to our customers in the R/C community. Keep following us for updates.

Never heard 0f Planes Gone By Hangar before, don't do FB so I can't what they are all about. So did they buy everything but the Wendall Hostettler molds? I just got a cowl from Fibertech n More for a Tri Pacer last week.

Thanks for the link, When I Googled Planes Gone By Hangar. only their FB page showed up. It is nice to hear today of a new company in the RC hobby rather than the normal news we hear of businesses closing or paring back.
