There has been a lot of talk on the web since Chris Miller  announced the closing of Cobra Company.

 

 I wish to announce that I have secured the purchase of the assets of Cobra Company. The Cobra Company product line will be folded into that of Lone Star Models. There are approximately 150 different Cobra Company products.

  Much like those from Lone Star Models there are some that just never sell well. I plan to assess the viability of each and bring back the most popular sets first.

 

There will be a special page on my site for these sets. They will have a LSM prefix to their Part number . Example LSMCC48001. It will take  me a while to go through each set and get them back into production.

 

Mike

Congrats on the business move!  Great for you and even better for the modelers! I wish something like this could have been done years ago with CEM.  I still want that Tu-4 B-29 conversion. :rofl:

Yes I plan to bring what I can. I always seem to have way more stuff than I have room for but then that's part of the fun for you guys, looking through it all. See you there, Mike
