In 2000 - 2001 I was very fortunate to be given the opportunity to purchase the entire CHB Models line directly from Charlie Brommer. I received the original brass masters, Charlie's original drawings, and a ton of valuable advice. I had actually been in contact with Charlie several times prior inquiring about his body of work after he retired. I was so happy to receive a phone call early one Saturday morning from my friend Dave Revelia. Dave had heard that Charlie was indeed ready to retire and knew I was very intertested in working with Charlie to insure the continuation of CHB Models.
