Scale line models? Do they exist....?

There was a French or Dutch ( I think) resin manufacturer that went under the name of Scale-line and produced some 1/35th kits of nicely obscure vehicles. One of these was the Landsverk m38 armoured car. This looks to be quite a nice kit. Does anyone know if this company still exists anywhere or if anyone has this kit available? A couple of attempts at an internet link that I found in the last year has produced no response.
Thanks, John

Thanks, Paul, but that is the one that has not replied; I found the last entry from their website seems to be in 2006 or early 2007. It may be listed but does not seem to be active.
I am trying to find out if there is a live link somewhere, or the address of that Scale line shop which is somewhere in Holland. Or just someone who has a kit! Nothing in life is simple, but that is part of the pleasure. That is what I keep telling myself.....John

I will try an e mail first, then if that gets no reply I will try a letter.
Thanks for the advice, I hope it is successful.

I was just over in their shop about a month ago, I guess Ton (van Rijnberk) is not always responsive to his e-mails. They used to be in Tiel but have moved to Zetten a few years ago.

I have their Landsverk,it's a fine kit. Solid piece of resin.

Ton is running his shop and creating new masters, now a days I believe he is more into 1/16 scale (RC).

hope this helps, eliminates the doubts you might have.

Wouter, thank you for your help.

I e-mailed Ton nearly two weeks ago- no reply so far!
I will send a letter with an International Reply Coupon and see if that gets a response.
Otherwise I will have to go to Zetten from England, but my wife will not believe it is a place to go for a holiday.

Thanks also for your comment about the Landsverk-that makes me even more want to get one, if he will respond.
Everything comes to he who waits......

Best wishes, John
