Are you producing Matt Thor's boats now?

Or are you referring to your 1/96 Archerfish kti?

Lee has kindly asked that I address this so I will gladly do so. Lee purchased the molds, patterns and rights to the kit line that Thor Design & Development (old Engineered Specialties) manufactured from 1991-1998. This line includes the original Sturgeon from 1991, the original Alfa from 1992, The original Los Angeles from 1994, the original-prelaunch SSN21 from 1995. He can quickly produce any one of these kits that you desire. Lee and I have discussed the format of the kits at length which may or may not include all of the fittings that were previously supplied. I am certain that the quality will certainly be on par with the kits that Lee already supplies, so there should be no concerns in this department.

Atomic Subs is producing the ThorDesign Permit, the ThorDesign Alfa, the ThorDesign Seawolf, and the original D&E miniatures SkipJack in 1/96. All of these kits were patterned and released between early 2002 and 2004 when I returned to the business.. I will still do the glass work on his kits, but Dave Merriman and others will support him supplying the other trimmings as he develops his business. The kit line will include all of the fittings and trimmings as before, and Lyle has some ideas of his own for improvement.

I hope this clears up any confusion. Thanks.
