Good Point. We are force driven by the consumer, competition & the OEM price pressure we're constantly under to build product in China. We created this trap ourselves by enriching them to the point where it's nearly impossible to seek an alternative and now we're seeing how they are becoming more dangerous to their Pacific neighbors. Biden says he'll create domestic jobs but I think that's a dream. His ordering that all Government vehicles be electric will take time to rotate the current ones out and you're not actually creating jobs as the replacements will be just normal attrition not additional sales/work. So this is SPIN. There's no ability to maneuver as consumers demand low prices and they can't afford a domestic wage product so we're stuck. We have 2 domestic plants and a 3rd we plan to open in Missouri but we still need a lower cost center to average down our total cost so because I don't like anything about China we are developing a Mexico operation. BTW we've needed 16 direct labor employees since August and so far 0 applied. Economics 101: A Country is strong when it produces both Goods & Services and I wonder about the US because the imbalance seems pretty evident as we're now much more Service orientated that producing Goods.

As a kid in the 50's I built many Revell & Monogram models and loved doing it. I picked this back up in my 40's with airbrushing stripped diecast cars. Just wish I had the talent to create a display like this. Hope he considers allowing a museum to display it. That would be great.
