I can say this about raw materials; our local zinc mine, here in northern TN, closed several years ago. 2 months ago they had a press statement that is was re-opening by the end of this year and would employ about 300 workers. If Zinc is in this high of a demand, I can see why Die-Cast kits wouldn't sell: material cost.Dave Metzner said:Maybe Hawk could buy it all and sell off the Die cast---That's a BIG gamble...
The Die Cast market is GLUTTED and the cost of raw materials hs gone way up, the reason RC-2 hasn't found a buyer is that nobody wants the Die Cast stuff.
Revell-o-gram just converted several new items that had been planned as Die-Cast kits to Plastic mainly because Zinc costs have gone thru the roof.
