Oh wow congradulations MM!

There's a joke here about 'job security' when you're given a big pile of work. That's enough 'job security' to keep your builders going for years!!!

Thanks so much for your kind words, Gamera! 

But 200 kits won't last for years. I have 4 active builders working for me. With 20-30 kits built per month, 200 kits will run out in 7-10 months only. So the 'job security' is not so secure.

Oh, I always forget how fast your builders build. Hopefully it will last them to sometime between Western and Chinese New Years?

Well, one is OK. To think positively, if you buy one everyday you'll get 365 kits in a year.

Last month I made available 5 new pages showing 39 kits, but that's a peak month. My stock will last much longer than that, as I'm gonna get more soon...

I've cleaned up on sales, maybe 10-15 at a time.

I once went over to a guys house to buy some kits; he had about 3,000 stacked up throughout his house from a single sale, and a very grumpy wife.

Does he build them? Without a lot of helpers, will he finish them in this lifetime? I wonder.

Today I added 8 more images showing the new location of those kits, as well as the kind seller. You might want to check this out.

PS. "Art Instructor" knew about this purchase and he said he's lucky too!

Very imopressive! I enjoyed the video, even though I couldn't understand. I was very intregued by the young lady swinging the AR-15 around at the beginning, is that real? Also, is that your gun collection on the wall? I've got a lot, but have to keep them in a safe.

Loved the Dora. Is that the 1/35 scale kit? As a former artilleryman, this is truly one of my favorite of the giant guns. May even get the kit someday.

Thanks for sharing,

Chris

Thanks, Chris! The AR-15 is not legal in Thailand, so what you saw is a BB gun. The gun collection on the wall is my kind seller's collection. Not real guns. As for real guns, he has 94 short and long guns, all legal.

Yes, that's 1:35 Dora from Soar Art. Soon I'll present German 35.5cm M1 Super Heavy Howitzer 1:35 also from Soar Art. My Modeler "Art Instructor" will come to take it tomorrow. The kit is available on ebay for $700, seller is in US. Another 2 sellers (US) sell by bidding, starting at $500 and $600. To buy rightaway, it's $700:

You're welcome,

Something like that, I have a sign in my showroom that reads "Military Models Museum". Come to Thailand some day, you can view for hours. There're many more that the video didn't cover.
