William from Hobby Master in Hong Kong has asked me to help clear up some
misconceptions concerning the Hobby Master models. They don't use molds that were
once used by other die-cast companies, they develop their own from scratch. They
never have used die-cast molds from others and don't plan on beginning this practice.
I added a photo of the Hobby Master F-117 in the very early stages of development, in
the plastic development mold prior to becoming a metal mold. CLICK
