    I just found out that walthers now owns bowser , my uncle told me this when i showed
    pictures of there new u-boats, you want find anything on there web sites yet my uncle found this out because he owns his own cpomuter company.

    what do you think ?

    Maybe, but if true, Walthers surely would have announced it. I'll look forward to seeing if it is true. :)

    Haven't heard anything from the usual suspects, but that doesn't mean it isn't true. The thing that seems just a bit odd is that Bowser is also both manufacturer, and distributer, like Walthers, and I hadn't heard that Bowser was having problems. I'll have to keep aware of the situation.

    Sorry to hear that if it is true. While no enemy of good business, I'd rather not have all the hobby coming from one pot. On the other hand, I still have one of Bowser's beautiful K4s...still unassembled...40 years later...sigh:rolleyes:

    I just checked both Bowser’s and Walthers website and there is nothing about this. A take-over like this I am sure one if not both websites would have an announcement on them. When Bowser took over Stewart the announcement was on both websites the day it happened.

    Until an official announcement comes out I would file this one under rumor.

    I checked both sites as well and found nothing about it.

    By the way Matt, what on earth is a "cpomuter company" and how is it connected to either Walthers or Bowser?
