Good evening,

You have probably heard of the disaster here in West Germany. My family and myself were lucky, no one was injured. Unfortunately, I lost my workshop in the water. It will take a long time to rebuild everything.

There is no production this year, as soon as I can produce again I will inform you.


with kind regards,Guido Henn

The weather is much wilder these days- we can all see that. At least you're safe, and for that, we must be thankful; but it must be heartbreaking to lose the workshop. Sadly, though, others have lost even more. :(
Photos of the floods are shocking. :O Here's hoping, in future, we all get better warnings of imminent disasters.
Christian lost his workshop to Fire; now you have lost yours to Water.
What next, I wonder? :problem:

I am so sorry to hear this Guido.
I can't begin to imagine what you are going through.
Hopefully you can get back to some kind of normality soon.
Kind regards.
Mick.

I am desperately sorry that you have suffered this disaster and having lived/visited most of north western Europe where I made good and lasting friends,
I have lots of fond memories which will last long after this catastrophe has faded,
Here is a very personal note, (Please God no matter what you do to me physically in my advancing years please leave me my intellect).
Having been to parts of the world that suffers natural disasters what seems all the time I would come back to the UK blessing the fact that at least here I was safe,
The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Island does not do extremes, No dangerous wild animals,apart from the Adder which is as timid as a field mouse, No active Volcanoes or earthquakes over 2., The weather when it is bad (By British standards) will be better in a matter of days BUT now that feeling of security is gone,
It matters not wherever you are climate change can dump on us and we for once cannot blame anything other than our own selfish selves.
Let it not be to late for us to provide a decent future for following generations and the planet we all call home.
Take care Guido I hope everything picks up very soon.

That is an unfortunate occurrence Guido. Your products are top-notch.
Hopefully your workshop recovery is swift and complete. (Aka hope insurance claims go fast!)

Hello model builder,

thank you all for the nice comments. Meanwhile, all insurance companies have covered the cost of the damage.

Unfortunately, we now have a shortage of craftsmen and materials in Germany. :{

My plan is that the workshop is rebuilt until December and the necessary material is procured. Then I can open the store again and deliver.

Until then, I wish everyone a good time. :thumbup:

Congratulations. That was most of the battle, now comes the waiting. Looking forwards to getting some great products once again once you are back operating again!
