  7. Revell Under New Management after Hobbico Bankruptcy

    The Reason the Revell sales was so cheap was the debt owed by both companies both Revell Germany and Revell USA. If some of the tooling is in China and money is owed, there is a chance of it going to the scrap man. If Revells new owners have deep pockets and can settle the outstanding debt in China no problem. If its not done quick scrap yard it will go, as one poster stated international Business law means sod all in China. A number of Diecast brand that we once imported are now in the scrap yards, due to debt, the Chinese Gov does not like debt full stop.
