Default Very Surprised Right Now

I just found out that Daron Worldwide Trading Happens to make every model aircraft company except maybe Inflight200. Did everyone know this already?

Edit: They also make inflight200

I don't think so.

They are IMPORTERS of lots of models (maybe the largest importer/wholeseller) , but they don't make the models themselves. The models are made by the companies that you hear about all the time, like JC Wings/Gemini Jets, InFlight, Phoenix, Western Models, Hobby Master, ect.

What made you think they made ALL the models? Just curious.

Their website is misleading then. Just so happens that their warehouse is 20 minutes away from my house, no more waiting for things to ship

I know they definitely own skymarks, no doubt about that, considering the daron branding is on all their products. I think they might own some of the companies, I will email them to find out.

I am not sure, but the Gemini Official Showroom might just be one of the locations for the Daron Store, TheAirplaneShop. Either that or they are just both situated in Vegas.

The Daron branding is on some Hogan models too, but it doesn't mean they make those models either. Like I said, the are one of the largest importers of models into the USA, so they get some manufacturers like Hogan and Skymarks, to place the Daron brand on the model boxes. With Skymarks, it is usually the less detailed models that carry the brand

Some of the members of this forum have visited the Skymarks factory in I believe Taipai, Taiwan.

Anyway, anyone else care to comment?

The Airplane Shop is located in the Headquarters for GeminiJets in Las Vegas. GeminiJets and Daron are partners in the Las Vegas location.
Daron itself owns Skymarks but is the distributor for all of the other brands, except for the Daron branded toys of course
