 :|                  This does suck. I have two of his models, a UP former C.&N.W. Track Inspection Car and  a 1949 SP midtrain lounge car. I really wanted one of the SAL /SCL Sun Lounge cars,but when I ordered my two cars alot of cars were listed as no longer available,that was one of them. Nate Goodman (Nato).

I could kick myself for not getting his EMD research cars.

He was selling them for about 200 on his site.  But they were going or only about 90-110 on ebay- once again, because of tiny photos.

CSX used these cars when testing the AC6000s.

Nate's CNW Obs car is sharp. 

I know the Metra Bi-Levels were like 90% accurate.  Wrong window color, and one two many windows on a side, if I recall correctly.  The trucks were an abomination.

Websites are back up that I can see now, but the store is still down.

What are you guys using for Ebay search terms? Ebay keeps changing LookModel to Lot Model for me  :facepalm:

Only gets changed when the search results are zero. It should otherwise work.

That said, it's probably a good idea to search: (lookmodel, look model)

Still nothing to be found at present.

The ATSF big dome went for $409, with multiple guys bidding. A bit rich for a passenger car?

48hrs ago, his *.jp domain name was unregistered and up for sale.  Now it's active again.

Hm.

That's what happens when someone forgets to renew (and pay) for their domain name registration.  :facepalm:

Interesting,  lookmodel.jp is active again - definitely was pointing to a splash page for his ISP the other day....

Maybe he is listening to the chatter out there about this!  :)

More likely he saw his cars going for $400 on eBay and is coming back to get a piece of that action.

Of course, if they're readily available, no one's willing to pay it.  And, like so many comments here indicate, everyone just tells themselves that they'll buy it "later".

If he starts selling again I might just have to drop the money to make sure I don't miss the opportunity the second time.

at least there are tough rules about getting a .jp domain name. First and foremost, you have to live or have an office in Japan! Second, you can only get it for one year at a time, and they are NOT cheap. People were moaning when GoDaddy raised their .com prices to $14.99 per year, but it is a lot better than the $99.99!
