...consider that both Don and Carol had professional careers when he started making little reproduction parts. He's an engineer in addition to being an expert model maker.
They took those skills and that professionalism and applied it to the Modelhaus product. They both had considerable business acumen on top of that.
And eventually that company became their full-time careers. Hanging out in their shop was a lesson in how to run a business. That whole operation was something to see, and I feel very fortunate that I got to spend that time with them.
Without that experience and education, and without that level of professionalism, no one will be able to match their product or their service.
Nor their integrity.
Helluva couple, those....
