I'm getting mixed messages regarding Aeroclub Models and their wonderful selection of white metal & vacform parts- sadly of course, since business partner Mr Wright passed away suddenly in 2010, the information has gone out that Aeroclub has closed. Yet I have heard that John Adams, the surviving partner is still trading - but trading in what, and under what business name?
Is he still producing those quailty pieces or are they lost to us forever?

The website has closed but John is still doing kits. Check out this thread for contact information. I'm sure he'll tell you about what he's doing with the parts business.

well they have a stand at the IPMS TELFORD this weekend, i saw it yesterday, they didn't have a full range of kits or parts but didn't look as thought they were having a closing down sale either!
