      I know a lot of us are fans of Guillem's great work, so I was saddened to see this today on his site (actually posted 22 October).

      "Due personal reasons I will set aside the website, blog, stock, items and store for an undefined period of time. It happens to all of us in our life that situations make some things harder to handle and I find myself unable to continue with the models at this moment, and although I wish to come back in the future, maybe in the next year, at this moment I require a rest.

      Thank you all for the understanding and the support.

      Best wishes,

      Guillem"

      Hopefully Guillem is ok and will continue his business in the not too far future.
      I was really looking forward to his A320neo engines for a planned A321neo in Hawaiian colours (if any of the decal makers are listening ......?)
      If you read this Guillem I wish you all the very best for the future.

      Cheers,
      Jan

      Hello everybody,

      Thanks for your support Roy and Jan

      I am definitely active although I've had some difficulties that prevented me to continue with the models and at that time I did not know for how long this would last.

      I am having more enthusiasm lately and I am currently working step by step as I have started several projects that took me a lot of time.

      The Neo engines are giving me a little bit of trouble, in first place because of lack of experience on this subject as they are the first 1/144 engines that I make, on their final stage I wasn't happy with the panel lines so I have to fix them. But they are 98% finished, I just need to redo the panel lines. I would like to do the Leap version in the future.

      I also had problems with one of the materials that I use for the photo etched parts but that I finally received after two months and this allows me to continue.

      During all this time I also started to design livery decals for the Zvezda's A320 as I plan to have decals in the catalogue as well thanks to the printing services of my friend Rob.

      I have been working in a new online store and this also took me time as I never worked in php before, but the store is practically finished and ready.


      My goal is to release these items again at around the end of November together with the new GSE models (baggage carts and belt loader) as well as the A320 galleys and cargo holds.

      These are some of the photos of the models that will be uploaded to the new store:














      I will do my best to open the new store at the end of November

      Best wishes,
      Guillem

      Thank you everybody

      Currently working on the new online store and the A320 model that I am making as example for the galleys and cargo holds.
      Stock is being made too.

      This is the small A320 PE sheet that will be available as well.








      Wish you all a happy weekend

      Best wishes,
      Guillem

      Thank you very much Philippe, Alan and Holmes

      It is taking me some time but I am getting back to prepare those items, so I hope to have them ready soon.

      I am also thinking to make the two small GPS antennas and add them to the PE sheet.

      Best wishes,
      Guillem

      Hello Guillem, it's Yaotl Rocha. Please keep us updated of the progress, waiting anxiously for you to have the items back in stock. Hope all is well.

      Buddy of mine once told me that he'd rather fly a jet than kiss his girl, said it gave him more of a kick.

      Welcome to the forums Yaotl

      I am currently cleaning the resin parts of the GSE models. The belt loader and the carts won't take as long as the others, so I hope to have them all available soon

      Thank you very much for your interest Yaotl!

      Best wishes,
      Guillem

      Hi Guillem

      I echo the sentiments on here. Hope you are doing better.

      I've been watching those belt loaders for a while. Will you be selling the buggage as well? I've been looking everywhere for decent scale examples.

      Thanks
      Tony

      Hello Tony,

      Thanks for your message and support
      I will include 7 baggage with the belt loader, and I will also include them with the baggage carts, although I am not sure yet how many baggage per cart (but more than 7) as I will release the carts in sets of three similar as I did with the LD3 trolleys.

      I like to say that I have already started to produce the first units of these items, finally after such long time

      Best wishes,
      Guillem
