When the orders are coming in fast and furious, you need all the hands you can get! Fortunately, Liz had EIGHT additional hands (er... paws) when Warehouse Winston and Calli came to the rescue!

Our SoCal Warehouse is NOW OPEN
for your shopping pleasure!

Open Monday - Saturday 10AM - 4PM

Almost 2000 square feet!
Something for every kind of modeler:

35688 Cathedral Canyon Drive • Suite 110
(Cathedral Canyon Business Park)
Cathedral City, CA 92234

It is a good idea to give us a call before visiting. Warehouse Winston sometimes demands a walk, or we suffer the consequences. We wouldn't want to be out walking Winston when you arrive, and you think that we weren't around.

Warehouse Winston stands guard! Come shop at the warehouse and help keep him in the doggie treats he's become accustomed to!

HEY GUYS... SAY “HELLO” TO LIZ, who joins Rare-Plane Detective, and R-PD officially become a "team" again! She started a couple weeks ago and immediately cleared up the all the outstanding orders to be packaged and mailed. (Whew!) In addition to packaging and shipping orders, she also has been helping me with organizing inventory, learning eBay, and giving Warehouse Winston a pat or two on the head. (It's important!)

She has a degree in American Military History, which will come in handy around here! As a young 'un she used to build model kits with her uncle, so she knows her way around a glue tube! In fact, she picked up a Frog 1/72 Tupolev SB-2 off the shelf and is building it now. When she finishes, it will be one more model kit than I have built in this Century! Oddly enough, I had to come across country to California to get a genuine (South) Jersey Girl working with me again. Things are looking good in R-PD Plastic Paradise.... but Liz and I would be ecstatic if we could just find a Palm Springs pizza place that makes REAL South Jersey-style pizza!
