"According to Wang, many clients are military enthusiasts, who are very demanding when it comes to accuracy.

"Not a few brought measuring gadgets and magnifiers, scrutinized every detail of our models, and made comparisons with the parameters they had during several toy trade shows we attended," he said."

You think he means us?

Did any of them point out the wrong angle of the Panzer 4 Engine Bay or the wrong location of the Tiger 1s Turret or the duplicated aerial stowage tubes on the Tiger 1?
Thought not.

Erik, I've been there, too, more than a few times, at their original workship & have to disagree. As you well know, staff turnover, especially in a factory town HL is located tends to be on the high side so perhaps the pretty ones went to higher paying gigs elsewhere before your visit.

Here's a link to a post I made the same year that article appeared.

Jerry, Its been a while but Dani Dong, Vivian Hong, Linda Long, Wanda Wong, Cheech & Chong... the list goes on but I've never been one to talk.

Wish I had migrated that link to iCloud before Apple closed the older service. Gotta look for my storage drive with those photos from long ago.
