Addressing "old" business concerns

I was on the phone the other day with one of our long-time modelers and he mentioned that in his small circle of modeling friends, the question of Model Expo "being in trouble" came up yet again. His short response to this question of Model Expo's status is no, they are NOT "in trouble".
My longer version of a response to this question follows:

In 2011, Model Expo released 13 NEW model kits within our Model Shipways, Model Trailways, and Guns of History product lines. In addition to new kits, we added numerous NEW tool offerings within our Model Expo Precision Tool product line.

Looking forward into 2012, Model Expo is targeting to release at least 12 more NEW model kits:

  • Rucker Ambulance Wagon by Guns of History (Spring 2012)
  • Limber, Signature Series by Guns of History (Spring 2012)
  • Gunboat Philadelphia by Model Shipways (Summer 2012)
  • Half Hull Model Kit (Name TBD) by Model Shipways (Fall 2012)
  • USS Cairo by Model Shipways (Winter 2012)
  • Model Railways line of Structures (6 to 8 kits, periodically throughout 2012)
  • And several more are on the drawing board!
In addition, we have embarked on longer lead-time development projects that will ultimately be released during 2013 to include:
  • Dr 1 Fokker by Model Airways
  • Fire Hose Wagon by Model Trailways
  • And several more are on the drawing board!
Through our continual business realignment initiatives, and our dedication to leading our industry with new and exciting model kits & tools, Model Expo is poised for future / long-term growth. We are excited about what the future holds and are always ready to begin research for our next new project!
