Now for the big news around here: we have purchased Tank Workshop! This is NOT a hostile take over of this well known company. I have used many TWS products in the past, and have always thought it was a sound line at a fair price. Certain situations that do not need to be discussed here presented us with an opportunity to acquire this well known resin line. Larry Provo is selling to us on good terms, and will remain in business as a consultant to TMD, and master pattern maker for the TWS line. Larry will be working closely with us to keep the TWS line alive, and we hope to breath new life into his fine kits.
