Re: The end of an era
We, as a 1:1250 community, owe Peter. Debt of gratitude that we can never repay. Thank you Peter. Enjoy your retirement.
Truly the Dean of our hobby. More than any single person, Peter Wiedling made it what it is today.
Peter Wiedling has announced that he is closing his business by June 30. A true giant of the hobby, one of the most prominent and influential of all our dealers, the business dates back to the 1930's and was started by his father Egon. Peter assisted many producers to get started by encouraging them and assisting them, buying their first productions. Rudi Kraus (Neptun Navis) sold his first models, as a young man to Peter, and in 1997 Peter took a chance on my very first SMY productions. A wonderful gentleman and a longtime friend, he will be sorely missed.
