Oh, I realize things aren't always as they appear, and I know making money "hand over fist" isn't always a reality. But I do think Tamiya is very strong in the brand recognition category. For example, log onto ebay most anytime, and do a search, and you'll usually find a vintage Tamiya model (Bruiser, Avante, 959, etc) at the top of the list. I believe that has a positive impact on a company's health in the long run.
In addition, I woudn't necessarily assume that a company isn't in good health based on the real estate situation. Fact is, many (if not all) companies frequently have to make tough decisions with respect to real estate. Through all that, the core values of the company (quality, effective marketing, r & d, etc) should endure. At least that's the hope.
