Response to Selling Parts

Yes what you say is probably correct at the highest level, but when you need a Tamiya part you don't call Tamiya's HQ in Japan, or even their factory in the Philippines. You call their US or Canadian or wherever distributor. The distributor (like Dragon USA, Tamiya USA etc.) does not carry stacks of every part for every kit. They are also often really set up to deal with retail stores or wholesalers versus individual people. They provide spares or extra parts as a service on a parts-available basis.
