THE RUMORS ARE TRUE - ARCHER IS CLOSING


Recommended Posts

NOTHING LASTS FOREVER

The time is well past due for me to throw in the towel and close up shop for good, so between now and our official closing date, November 30, 2022, we will be liquidating all of our current inventory - first come, first served. We are expecting a high volume of sales during this inventory liquidation period so we are asking for your patience, and to expect delays in receiving your orders. We will be sending periodic updates on inventory availability in the weeks ahead.

 

WHY NOW?

We've had a good run for over 33 years but I'm old, tired and ready to reclaim what's left of my life while I'm still healthy and able to do some of the things I enjoy.

 

There was a time not that long ago that I had unbounded enthusiasm for Archer but those days are sadly fading away. Age has caught up with me and I simply can't keep up with new the technologies emerging in our industry, and tech in general. Frankly, it's become a struggle to come to work lately and that's not fair to our customers, and I'm not about to hang on at your expense for no reason other than my pride.

 

CHEER UP, I'M NOT DEAD YET.

Don't expect to see me napping on the porch waiting to die. My friend and I have started a non-profit cat rescue (thecatfarm.org) and I'm sure being a cat herder will take up a lot of my time. Incidentally, all of the profits between now and when we close will go toward our rescue.

 

PARTING THOUGHTS

Before I go I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to all our customers who supported us over these many decades. Your patronage helped feed my family and put a roof over our heads, and for that I will be eternally grateful. I pray each and every one of you has a long, healthy and happy life.

 

In closing, allow me to take a moment to recognize and publicly thank Cookie Sewell for convincing me to get Archer started. Thank you, my friend. What a long, strange trip it's been.

 

FAREWELL and HAPPY MODELING,
The cool kids at Archer
Woody Vondracek and Chrissy Perdue

Indeed sad to hear Woody, but as you say maybe its time to do some stuff for you to do some things for YOU.

 

Hopefully you will still be around LSP!


I had to close so I can finish my Corsair. Oy vey, so many parts.

A sad day indeed,  Woody, but we've enjoyed your contributions, and hope that you will continue them. We also thank you for all the support you've given us in your capacity as a site sponsor, and wish you all the best in your impending retirement!

I have no intention of giving up models so y’all are going to have to put up with me until I croak.
