New web site www.model-engine-plans.com is launched!
« on: January 17, 2010, 09:10:08 PM »
We have deployed the new web site for Jerry's plans and projects.   www.model-engine-plans.com

As you may (or may not) know, Dad designed and built his web site www.jerry-howell.com from scratch with no professional help.  He launched his site in 1997, back when the the internet was still new to the 'common Joe'.  When he started it, he had only a few plans and kits available.  His passion was developing and building new engines, and the web site was simply a means to get his designs known to the public.  He never felt much the need to 'modernize' it, as it was serving it's purpose quite satisfactorily for him.  He'd much rather devote his time to his engines.

After his passing, us siblings felt the site needed modernized and a more convenient method to place orders.  We have added a 'shopping cart' feature found in nearly all internet 'store' type sites, and we now also accept credit card and Paypal payments directly from the new site.

We will keep www.jerry-howell.com indefinitely, as we simply can't bring ourselves to remove "Dad's" site, and for those of you that like the older format, you may continue to use it and the mail-in order forms.  However, we encourage everyone to try the new site and give us your feedback, positive or negative, and any suggestions you may have for improvement.

Leave comments here on the forum, or e-mail me at allen@outpostenterprises.com

Thanks!

Allen

Allen,

I just found out that you father passed away. My condolences to you and your family.

I am very happy to see that you are going to keep Jerry's great plans available.

Regards,
Kory
