No, the quote is accurate.  Up to kit 17, they were very buildable kits. 
The last one I have is the Rumpler CIII/IV.  The next kit was horrible (I 
don't even remember what is was) and I didn't buy another Merlin kit.  The 
J1 was a good kit and I had some of the few that had two different fuselage 
halves instead of two of the same.

    However, take his Beech Staggerwing, please.  Bad joke.

    When he branched out into 1/48th, what I saw was beyond bad.

    If I'm not mistaken, I think Veeday was this gentleman and Chris Gannon. 
They parted company and Chris started Pegasus.  Merlin got worse and Pegasus 
got better.  Talking with John Adams a number of years ago, he would not fit 
in with the rest of the WW1 community.  I have no idea what has happened to
