n scale decals on eBay

Hi there,

Some time/months ago there were quite a few decals for sale on eBay from a guy (D&K Metal Technologies) in Pennsylvania (different scales but a lot of N scale).
Not a trace these days...........Somebody knows what happened?

I am a not-so-new member and that link took me into limbo, with the "back" functions not working.

So, can we, who are stuck out here in the sunlight, get some hint as to what is going on in the "back room"?

Link took me right to the relevant thread, but if you are having issues, search for a thread called-

I similarly cannot view the thread. I've been on here for a while but don't post much. Maybe that is why we are restricted?

What a shame.  I hope someone confiscated all of his decal art work.  It grinds my gears to say this about such a creep, but he made nice decals.... :RUEffinKiddingMe:

Should have split that into 4 posts...  ;)

Its a shame to loose the potential resource because the person behind it had to be a total D-bag.

An option to explore is Tichy, as mentioned in this thread they have got into the decal business, including custom runs...

The link goes to the thread in the "Crew Lounge"  You have to have 25 or more posts before you are allowed in.

My signature area keeps saying that I have 20 posts, post-after-post.  So, does that mean that I have started 20 threads, and I need to start 5 more to get admisssion to the "Crew Lounge", or does it mean that the site stopped counting my posts to other peoples' threads some time ago?

Its still counting... If you look at show posts under your profile you have 23 but the 2 posts to the admin section arent counted towards your total, so you're at 21...

Well,  now that I posted that, the count for that post says 21 posts.  But, I had checked a few other posts that I recently made, and they all said 20.  Did somebody just fix something?  I wonder what my post count will be on this one.

OK, Got it.  The post count on my signature area is "live" and updates on all of my old posts every time I make a new one. 

If I keep talking to myself like this, I will soon be a full-fledged member of the "crew."  Just wondering, do we all end-up talking to ourselves before we "make it?"
