Dave Blum designs. Who's kitting them now?

Now that I have a mess of brushless 12mm motors I'm interested in some of Dave Blum's designs. I have the C-180 from Mountain Models. I know Aerolock was selling the BD-5 and I believe the C-182 short kits but if I remember right they closed shop. The website no longer exists. Is anyone else short kitting them now?
