What happened to The Fruit Stand?

Did they go bust? Hate to see them disappear, I regularly sub their models in as AI.

I hope not. And I hope they'll be back up soon.

 

A lot of my AI's from there too.

 

I love the news & comments on their front page-- very independently minded...

Sad to hear that.   It costs money to run these web sites, and it can be hard to justify the costs when they don't get any sort of revenue. I'm not sure when they released their last model, but there seems to be a lot of new entrants into the AI space, so hopefully they can pick up the slack and fill the void.   Or TFS may just upload future models/paints to websites like AVSIM without maintaining a costly website.

 

Nonetheless, they were one of the best of the best, along with AI Aardvark, it breaks my heart that they may have closed shop for good.

Yes, and it's way past its expiration date. Time to close the dead thread.
