Authentic Airliners

I'm not sure where is the best place to post this but there is some bad news on Airliner Cafe.

 

I'm sure we all wish Kurt a speedy and full recovery

Gosh that's awful. I do hope he recovers quickly.

As I'm not an Airliner Cafe member and don't know Kurt personally or business wise, perhaps someone can relay the message:

I'm very sorry to hear of his health issues and wish him a speedy recovery, but the one thing he mentioned that 3D vision was mandatory for modelling is not true. I never had stereo vision as I only ever had about 25% vision in my right eye and I think I fair pretty well on the modelling side of things. Sports? Pilot's license? HGV license? CG 3D effect artist? Binocular's designer? Not so much. But normal scale modelling? Totally, no problem. Long live Authentic Airliners.

 

Cheers

Jeffrey

Yes - I don't have proper 3D vision due to a stigmatism in my left eye. It's not really affected my model building as far as I know. The only real issue I ever had was not being able to make out those "Magic Eye" pictures that were all the rage 20 years ago.

 

But I do hope Kurt makes a full recovery. His products are second to none.

Ooh magic eye pictures, I used to love them. 

All the best Kurt praying for a speedy recovery.

Looks like they are back in business, at least for the moment.  I know we all love our Authentic Airliners kits but Kurt's health has to come first.
