Notice to all visitors:
Thanks for viewing the MinM Home Page. 

Well, if you have an interest in our parts, perhaps you have a hobby that can keep you occupied during this quarantine period.

Thanks for your interest in our line of scale model ship fittings.  These parts are of high quality and have been used by professional and amateur modelers since 1988.  We have received many wonderful "thank you" notes through the years from modelers who used our parts in their projects.  These are great for model warships and many other modeling applications.

Send us your orders, by mail or email, and we will do our best to get your stuff out quickly. Please see the section on Ordering Instructions below if you are not familiar with the way things work here.

We still have a few cast fittings available at reduced prices. We are discontinuing that line of parts, and you will note in our Savings Coupon that we are offering these items at a 25% discount. We are also offering a special discount during this quarantine time. See the coupon for more specifics.

You may notice, if you have been a past customer of our kits, that the K9607 26 ft. Motor Launch MK5 is no longer being offered as a complete kit. We ran out of key elements, and we are looking for a way to resolve this supply issue. Note the hull only kit version of this boat is still available. Let us know by email or letter if you have interest in this complete kit.

Thanks to all our loyal customers for their patience during my battle with cancer. I am on the mend now, and look forward to your orders.
