      Donít take rumors you hear at an IPMS meeting too seriously. That said, given their idiotic business practices it wonít surprise me to see Squadron go under. I havenít bought a thing from them in two decades, and see no reason to start doing so now, since they charge higher prices than almost anyone other than Hannants.

      The only thing thatís been constant in the hobby industry in the past 6 decades is change.

      One aspect is certain, their in stock/published airliner kit selection has dwindled to "next to nothing" over the past 6 to 12 months.

      Theyve completely outsourced their book publishing.
