I can't see any of their product pages. Was interested to see if any of their 2 1/2" scale narrow gauge 0-4-0 parts might could be used on a project I'm working on. It just took me right back to their main page.

Keep us posted if you hear form him. I was just at his web page, the link on the front page is a link to some high end housing (probably not in US) for sale, and there are other links for the same sort of stuff scattered through the site. It does not look promising.

I've been wanting a gander at the 0-4-0 cylinders as well.

If he's lost control of the domain hosting his webpage, which is what it looks like, not good, since the email addy is linked to the domain.
How about,

This web site is very odd. The two links contained on the pages go to a condo project in Singapore. It makes no sense why anyone would embed condo sales in a live steam web site. Or vice verse. It’s been this way since at least a year ago. Wouldn’t hold your breath about any of this being a decent resource.
