Some very sad news

This evening, I received some very sad news. Horst Kalinke the owner and master craftsman behind Continental Model Supply Company (CMSC), died in hospital at 11.00 last night (12th January). Horst had been diagnosed with cancer last year and was under going course treatment, sadly and unexpectly he lost the fight. Horst had been admitted to hospital earlier this week for monitoring, but late last night his family was called to his bedside as he rapidly weakened.

Personally, I feel very sad at the loss of my dear friend Horst, he was a great guy who loved a challenge. Horst was a master craftsman who's skills, enthusiasm, energy and talent will be greatly missed by the whole modelling community. I will never forget the quiet little white haired German guy puffing on a rollup, who helped me so much with my extravagant modelling projects, which he put in to production.

Rest In Peace Horst Kalinke.

How sad. What a great man and a good friend. I will miss him dearly. As many of you may know I used to sell CMSC kits when I ran PDI Model Supplies. He was a dear friend and my thoughts go out to his family.
He will be sadly missed on the modelling scene.
If Tim or anyone knows when the funeral is please let me know and I will try and attend.

RIP Horst

Hi Tim,

Many thanks for posting.

Horst was a great chap and a real gentleman, always humble with his skills, willing to help and explain things. I dont think he ever realised how highly he was regarded by Small Scale modellers. As befits a Fallschrimjager he was a real fighter, and continued working as long as he could.

Even when he was in pain and out of breath he always had a joke and kept on smiling.

Both Lily and I will miss him greatly.
Our thoughts are with Joyce, his wife and David, his son.

Rest in peace my friend

I didn't know him, nor have I ever used CMSC products, but any loss is a grievous one, especially to one's family. To many small scale armor modelers he was family and I shall pray for him and his family. May God welcome him into His kingdom and may his family receive strength and peace.
