There's not much to be said that hasn't already been said. Your products have made my ship modeling more fun and exasperating than can possibly be described.
I realize you weren't quite the first PE manufacturer, but some of my GMM envelopes still show the postmarks from the mid-1980s. I still remember the seminar you gave at an IPMS USA convention where you passed around a big Lusitania model with your PE to show how fine the details looked and how robust they could be. Your work enabled many of us to build models that constantly impressed the h heck out of our friends. It's been a long time since I've even considered building a ship without PE details.
I wish you the best with your health and for you and your wife to enjoy the coming years without the stress of dealing with odd questions, customs forms, vendor difficulties and all the rest.
Thanks for everything.
