Yat Ming Shutters its Doors


As more and more model makers struggle to stay afloat, one long time veteran has decided to throw in the towel and call it a day. Effective this July, Yat Ming has decided to end all of its diecast modelmaking production and has already begun to sell off much of its remaining inventory. Presently, we stock their 1:24 scale historic transports and may bring in the rest of their 1:48 scale military aircraft since they are quite affordable, hefty, and make nice entry points into the diecast military market. It’s a shame model makers have had to resort to closing down operations as a result of rising labor costs, a downturn global economy and increasing pressure to maintain margins, and we wish them the best of luck.
