Maybe I should apologize to that Monogram 1/48th P-61 Black Widow I have in the stash?

Oh, how I hated those satin-surfaced DML kits! Including the P-61, which went together eventually but it was hard work. I think they'd have to do a lot of re-engineering to get a decent fit and reasonable breakdown in 1/48 at the standards expected nowadays.

I made up the YF-22 and YF-23 kits and they put me off DML stuff. There was way too much guesswork involved in where parts were to go. The YF-23 came out slightly better and was sold several years ago but the YF-22 met with an accident and was reduced to parts. None of the other DML kits I'd bought were ever attempted except the 1/200th B-2. It would be done but the landing gear hid out in the wrong box for a couple of years. I just found them last year whilst going through a couple of "What do I have in here?" boxes.
So what did happen to AMTech?

And what happened to the P-61 molds? WRF

How typical... You post a *VERY* simple question and you got 5 replies so far. That is good except that none of the replies even attempt to answer your questions.
Err.. make it 6 replies as mine is also just a commentary. No idea about AMTech... Sorry. Peteski

I'd also like to know if AMTech is still in or is out of business. Is there anyone out there who can just answer that question?

Ditto on that, Bill. I spoke to one of the owners last year in Atlanta and he seemed good to go for the future. I expressed my desire for them to go ahead with their announced Big Banjo but nothing came of that - I ended up buying the CollectAire edition... From what I understand, one of the partners had some fairly serious medical issues for a while. Maybe that played into it... Well, AMTech was a nice idea while it lasted... :-(

Thanks so much for your commentary! For a while there, I thought it was just me who didn't understand my question. Now I'm sure that I posted the right question but got back no related responses.
