(Ed. note...FEBRUARY 2008....With great sadness I report to you that our Canadian friend and builder, Mr. Marv Miller has unexpectedly passed away. Marv was responsible for the design and the build of the limited edition drop arm chassis we planned to offer in Spring 2008.... He was also the designer of the Miller Guide Flag system as well as our Black Magic Motor. We do not have any inventory of these parts and there are no plans to have them remade...Please accept my apologies. Marv was a very good friend, and a true HO slot enthusiast. He will be missed.)
