Come, SWS brothers!
Finally, the IPMS to be held in Columbus, Ohio on July 22~25 is about to begin!
Dear brothers united by SWS, are you ready for this!?
I'm thinking about his every day, I can't even eat like I do!
This time will be close to Lake Erie, one of the Five Big Lakes, in Columbus, a beautiful city famous for her scenery.
This time too, I'm freaking excited about this funny journey ahead of us, the IPMS event and the chance of meeting many nice American modelers.
For all of you guys who will attend the show, make sure you visit Zoukei-mura booth first of all.
SWS brothers gather together at the "DELAWARE ROOM"!
Once you get to the venue, go first to "DELAWARE ROOM" and see if Zoukei-mura booth is there.
I can't speak English at all but, I'll welcome you with the best smile I can.
I'd expect you to master Japanese language this time!
To say "Thank you for coming, Zoukei-mura" in Japanese, you should say:
"YOKU KITANE ZOUKEI-MURA!"
This time, for the first time in the US, a mock-up of the SWS 1/48,
F-4 Phantom J-type will be exposed!!
It's still a mock-up but I bet you'll be staring at this baby for how cool it looks!
It's a really good work.
I guess your idea of 1/48 scale jet will be completely blown out!
That's how cool it actually is!!
As for me, the first time I saw this baby, its freshness and beauty, well I was just speechless!
This is what Zoukei-mura can do with an F-4 kit in 1/48!!
I'm pretty sure this mock-up will capture your heart.
And then, one more SWS in 1/48!
Yes, a prototype of that Ho 229 in 1/48 will be with us!!
Even if the release is still ahead, Mr. Kobayashi made its best to finish this prototype on time for a display at the show. Feel free to expect a finished kit that you wouldn't believe it's in 1/48 scale, as it outclasses the 1/32 kit!
The expressiveness of the inner structure, including the engines! This one of the aircraft that you, 1/48 scale fans were missing.
Only few SWS kits will be available at the venue!
Every year, the IPMS Zoukei-mura booth welcomes a lot of customers disappointed because of the sold-out items.
This time, you have the choice between pre-ordering your kits to VOLKS USA (our USA branch) via the Internet, or rushing first to the Zoukei-mura booth as soon as the venue opens.
Yes!! The safest way to proceed is to place your pre-order to VOLKS USA right now!
I am worried that by thinking carelessly, walking around slowly and so coming too late to the Zoukei-mura booth, you will be in front of "sold out" stickers everywhere, whereas you came to our booth.
This time, please come first to the Zoukei-mura booth, before walking around the convention and enjoying the show.

Zoukei-mura is a part of VOLKS Group Company.
Then, there is VOLKS USA in LA, California too.
"Through the world of hobbies, we want to make customers happy."
Raising this motto and company concept, VOLKS born 43 years ago, in 1972, in a Japanese city called Kyoto.
Thereafter and until now, the company plans, produces and delivers scale and railways models to boys, and original dolls to girls.
It is still a small company, but has a big dream that has nothing to envy in the world.
"Through the world of hobbies, we want to give opportunities to a lot of people, even if it is only to one person."
This is another motto of the company.
What we bring to the IPMS is that "your dream is my dream".
This year too, through the SWS kits, more than anything I am looking forward to meeting people that are like my brothers.
So, let's meet at the Zoukei-mura booth in the IPMS Columbus, Ohio!!
Don't forget to practice your Japanese too!!
Japan looks to be in a bad situation with 3 typhoons approaching, but how is the weather over there?
In Northern hemisphere, the heat has just begun.
Please take care of yourself, and spend every day in good health.
Then, to those who live in the Southern hemisphere, finally fall is going to end and cold had just begun. Please take care of yourself too.
Look forward to the next entry, about the "IPMS Columbus, Ohio"!!
