Re: Squadron Customers- How long have you bought from them? Since they are gone now.
My shopping from Squadron started back in the start of the 1980's.Always looked forward to the
monthly flyer and catalogue.Even when it was quarterly.Also I use to get the publication catalogue for each year or quarterlys of that year and I'd share it with you guys here and earlier on SMML.Wow,it's gone. Didn't they start back in the 1960's? By the early 2000's my customer number was low 29XX something and it created problems so they had to cancel my old number and give me a new one.
I got my 1st order from them in 1973. A 1/35 Italeri Hetzer and a 1/40 German Sdkfz 250 from Midori ( I think with the wind-up motor ). My customer number was 132. Tells you I must have been one of the early ones on the bandwagon. Thought it was odd they didn't do a Black Friday sale this year.
I have been buying from them since 1970. Snail mail and thier Elmhearst Store back then. Sorry to see their decline and demise now.
