Might be a strange question, and couldn't find any other section i find more appropriate,
so my question: how can i reach HW61?

I've been googling, but i can't seem to find their direct website, nor do i now they even have one.
Can anyone help me out here? Thanks.

Try this website and look for the "contact us" link:

http://www.ffertl3.com/

Where is it written that the more diecast $$$ equals a better diecast?

Thanks Acisne,

i actually found this site, but the "ertl" in the url and email confused me,
and made me assume this wasn't HW61's homepage.
Or is HW61 a part of the Ertl companies?

The short answer is, Fred Ertl Started Ertl and then was run by his son, Fred Ertl JR.
Fred Ertl III started Highway 61/DP in 1996. The Ertl Co. was sold to Racing Champions in 1999.

To reach Highway61 turn right go about 15 miles, and you will see an Exxon station turn left and go about another 8 miles then there it is. It's best if you have a Garman or something.  :giggle:

Now that is a short, simpel and clear answer. Thanks Acisne.
So, the only remaining mr. Ertl is running HW61, and c° Ertl doesn't belong to the Ertls anymore.
Makes perfectly sence  :rolleyes:
