... ... " Change at Modellbau Wiggers " ..
Dear all,

It seems that Wigger Modellbau did not completely shut down ...

I was not able to understand the full text , and th 25% remaining to understand can certainly make a great difference ...

So, before yelling hurra , that would be great if we could have confirmation (or not ... ), with help of a german native to translate ...  

This ad below has been posted few month ago on the " new " Wiggers Site ...
New presentation , I keep hope they did not change the site just to shut it down !  

Sehr geehrter Modellbauer,

wir danken für Ihr Interesse an unseren Produkten. Es gibt bei uns eine ÄNDERUNG ! ! !
Wir strukturieren in diesem Jahr um, das heißt, unser über 20-jähriges Dasein für den selbst bauenden Modellbauer mit Zeichnung, Materialbausätzen und Einzelteilen geht dann zu Ende, da die Kaufkraft seit Einführung des Euro auf unserem Sektor immer mehr abnimmt. Die wirtschaftlichen Rahmenbedingungen gehen also auch an uns nicht vorüber. Es wird für den Selbstbauer nur noch das Material zu kaufen sein, was am Lager ist.
Die Preise des Jahres 2005 bleiben vorerst bestehen.

WIGGERS Stirling Modellbau gibt es weiterhin. All unsere Modelle werden auch zukünftig von uns gefertigt, jedoch werden sie nur noch als exklusive FERTIGMODELLE angeboten und verkauft.

Besonderheiten und Neuheiten werden nur noch über das Internet präsentiert.

Aus diesem Anlass bitten wir Sie als selbst bauenden Modellbauer Ihre Wahl in den nächsten Wochen zu treffen, um aus dem vorhandenen Lagerbestand noch zu bestellen.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen

WIGGERS Stirling Modellbau

Thank you !
... ... " Change at Modellbau Wiggers " ..
Summary for the non German speakers: Wiggers will continue. They will stop selling materials and kits, but will continue selling ready-built models.  Anyone who wants to order kits or materials from the remaining stock should do so within a week.

this isnt a new message at all, it refer to the year 2005 transition from selling kits to selling ready to run models only.

please do not misslead us keen wiggers enthusiasts with false hopes
