Just wondering if anyone has info on this supplier. (They do ho scale passenger car detail parts).
I have emailed them several weeks ago, and so far no response. A call to their phone ends in a "no longer in service" response. 

Thanks in advance.

Ya. Probably defunct. Except why maintain your website if you are not going to respond?

It's like "look at all of our pretty stuff.....then go away"

Or their phone/internet service is down. These days your phone line usually goes through your internet connection.
Give them another try and see what happens.

I'd give them the benifit of the doubt, but there are a number of websites that stay up after the business is defunct or the owner has died. A previous employer did that, and I know of a photographer that died over a year ago and his website is still up. He never used ecommerce but just took checks through the mail. I wouldn't send any money, though reportedly a daughter was involved in the business. And I know of a brass dealer that died and his spouse didn't know anything about the business, the website or how to turn it off. Buyer beware.
