    Hi fans!

    As I have learned today Erick's models is shutting down at the end of the month.

    He has lots of good stuff (mainly models from games but some Star Wars and Star Trek models), awesome pics of the Space Shuttle and very inspiring tutorials. His tuts were very helpful for me when I started to design paper models myself. So if you still miss a model or turorial I suggest to grab it soon before the site vanishes.

    And Erick, if you read this, thank you very much for your excellent work. Maybe you could contact @Rhaven Blaack or someone else from the admin staff and have your files added to the resource section here. ;)

    Have fun and enjoy! :)

    I sent him an Email, hopefully, he will take us up on our offer. We have the collections of many designers, and they have complete control over them. :)

    Sorry to hear this. The Administrator of the site and builder was very talented and a valuable member. Hope his retirement is peaceful.

    Does anyone know how to contact him?

    There is an email link at the bottom of his site. I suggest to grab it in case, the site is still up.

    Just got the archive to store this URL
    https://web.archive.org/web/2015050...els.com/paper/models/minotaur5/minotaur5.html

    It isn't the neatest way to keep a record of it, but it does work in the meantime.

    I have not received a reply from him, so I guess he's taking it all with him. Of course, in a week or so, it will all pop up on the internet, such is the nature of things. :)
