PMI never went out of business, actually, but was liquidating its inventory as Lou prepared to retire. Anyway, I've stepped in and bought the entire enterprise from Lou, complete with its massive laser printer ($2,000 already just to restock all its infinite color modules and toner cartridges).
The website retains its original address - I'll be updating it considerably in the upcoming months: www.papermodels.net
E-Mail is firstname.lastname@example.org
It'll be a few months before I've got the paper catalogue updated, but anyone desiring the existing catalogue (or a new one when they're ready), just drop an e-mail to email@example.com
It's a good thing I've got a large hangar because even depleted, the inventory is still over 16,000 models, in piles of boxes completely surrounding my Cessna 180 at the moment!
As always, I'll be able to offer laser printed print FG models, in any size up to 12" x 18" (or on the backs of matchbook covers for Lep), and can guarantee proper proportionality and no cutoff edges for whatever scale is desired.
I'll be exploring putting FG models on silvered cardstock, and when I've got that worked out so the quality is consistent and acceptable, I'll put such models on offer (for a premium above the standard price - not sure yet what the premium will be but it'll be more or less whatever the increased cost of the silvered cardstock works out to, plus a small percentage for profit).
Moderators - I got Chip's permission to post this announcement in the forum - if possible it might work better in the Announcements thread but only moderators can post in that thread.
Thanks very much!
