T2M übernimmt FG Modellsport | Bigscale-Magazine.com
The French Model Manufacturer T2M SAS takes over the remains of FG model sport. As company founder Franz Jamara today announced today in a circular letter , T2M SAS buys based in France, the winter Bacher traditional company . For example, production and warehousing is moved to Faulquemont (Lorraine ) from the end of the month. Orders with FG Sport model are until 19 Taken in March against and edited by Paderno out . From 24 March then the procession begins . This also means the end of the company headquarters in Paderno . But it also opens up a ray of hope for FG model owners for the production , supply of spare parts and also the development should proceed by T2M According to Franz Jamara . Whether this will , however, apply to all products of the winter Bacher company left open and may well be doubted. The FG model range is quite large and the development of expensive and complex. It is unlikely that T2M want to diversify so . Since many components were not even made ​​in the past by FG itself but supplied , but it should definitely go with the supply of spare parts of all products.

All in all , the news of today positive for owners of FG models - though they should not break forth into joy because many questions remain : Which models are as continued what prices , in which quality is produced and what further development take place? We keep our fingers crossed that the company T2M manages to kick the heavy heritage and to satisfy the desires and needs of the FG customers. For as the current survey also shows put very many model owners to FG !

Here is the entire letter from Franz Jamara :

FG Future Official Statement

Dear FG importers and dealers, love FG clientele and model making friends ,

the last months were marked by speculation , doubt and uncertainty regarding the future of the company FG Model Sport GmbH . The continuation of the brand, " FG" has always been my main concern. I am pleased that we have established in France found with the company T2M an expert successor of the model construction , and thus , spare parts supply and new developments for the future are also available . T2M has supported us since the founding of FG model sport as a partner and importer for France.

The further processing will be as follows :
The site Paderno is 31 December. March 2014 closed. All orders ( also applies to our online store } received by us up to and including March 19 , will be in week 12/2014 still being processed and delivered. Starting with the KW 13/2014 the relocation of production and inventory begins to France. From there is to be expected with a smooth processing of your future orders from the beginning of April following, the contact details of the company T2M : . ...

At this point I would now like to thank all our customers and model friends thank you for the many years of devotion and loyalty to the brand, " FG" and would ask you to bring the new owner in the same way your confidence.

Rather hoping that the 2012 FG Short course and Trophy truck's will make another showing as I tried for two years to get either with no luck at all in the UK.

Is there any info on how available their vehicles and parts will be now that they have been purchased. I'm going around about buying another 1/5 scale and always really loved my fg touring cars.

I just talked with Victor at fg supply and he was saying that the cars and parts are still being made. Give them a call and I'm sure he can help you out.

I had a hard time ordering parts through FG Supply with Victor due to T2M not being able to supply them. I waited 3 months for a part and still couldn't get it and had to go overseas to another hobby shop to purchase FG parts. It was a pain, but it worked out in the end and Victor refunded my money and was good about it. I tried ddm a few times, but they have a limited supply of parts for FG applications.
