Response to Revell USA was bankrupt along with Hobbico and its sister companies

I'm not going to hold my breath for any US based subsidiary beyond distribution. Flip side is that Quantum Capital will 'cut the fat', whether that means 1/25 autos or old molds - who knows.
I think that QCP will eventually sell Revell, that is their business model - turn around ailing companies and make a profit on the sale thereof.

It is encouraging that it is their business to revive what they think are viable, yet underperforming businesses.

I believe they will do their best to eliminate parallel distribution channels in all the countries and try to make a global distribution model - that is where the efficiency is.

The fact that they are based in Germany lends credence and encouragement. If it were an American corporation, it would be a vulture operation, selling molds for scrap and liquifying the company.
