I certainly don't doubt you or the AU fellow's claim but it seems
strange that these folks (AU), who claim to seek out and channel
information about any and all Accurate Miniatures activities, would be
unaware of a revamped AM rising from the ashes and producing previously
offered kits again. Perhaps they dropped the ball, have no say in the
situation (my guess),weren't as interested as they claim or have other
Reading about individuals removing mail from other's mailboxes doesn't
interest me and visits from men intimidating other's wifes and families
belong in police reports. It's still unclear, to me, just what AU is,
what they want and what they think they can accomplish. I get the
distinct impression they (or it could be just one!) are on the outside
looking in and are banging on the door since they're out of the loop,
wanting in. The latest barbs on the AU forum don't help matters either.
Just who owns what parts of old AM, new AM or AU, to me, doesn't
matter. What matters is quality product, not selling soap flakes. Like
it's been said many other times in many other venues, these guys
should take it offline.
