I read about the demise of the subject company. I have only a few of the their HO models that fit the era of my 1920s railroad. I wish I had a few more Mack stake and tank trucks, and Ford model "T" pickups and sedans.

Does anyone know of another maker of 1920s-era HO scale vehicle model kits?

Inter-action has started looking at older vehicles: http://www.interactionhobbies.com/HO-7504-The-Canada-Contraption-Commercial-Motor-Vehicle-Co-Truck_p_61.html

They have another couple of kits combining laser and 3D printed parts, that haven't been posted on their website yet. "Watch this space."

Other than their website, I haven't seen any threads or built-up photos of the Wiseman pieces.....

Anyone have any links?

Check the link I posed above; click on pictures of trucks and they open to show each built up.

Chuck, you might also try "Sylvan" vehicle kits.
Also with the U.S. dollar being worth more than the Canadian dollar you may find them a little cheaper with the exchange.

Wacko's? Can't call folks Wacko's or crazy because the family respected the workmanship more than money.

Sorry Jim, but I would have to agree with CraigH on this one. I'm sure the relatives got a good chunk of the Jordan fortune by grabbing with both fists, and didn't want to deal with lawyers and paperwork for the rest. How sad it that for falling into the same scheme of things that many of us have witnessed when it comes to inheritances of many estates today.
Just my 2 cents...

I would like to see someone make molds of all the Jordon kits. I would think all they would need is the kits themselves to make CAD drawing of them. Wiseman just came out with new O scale kits that were all the HO SSLTD truck kits with Cad drawing I believe.... So if wiseman can do it I'm sure someone else could do the same? Jordon sure didn't own the Patent for Mack Trucks[:-splat
