Well the big two distributors are Horizon and Great Planes. They both require fairly big 1st time orders and must be paid for. After that they have a few different pay setups but with things the way they are nowadays the terms are alot less. I think 5 grand is a minimum order for Horizon.

I know both places require pics of the shop and a few other qualifications before you can order. They are basically try to stop the guy who has money from buying and selling from his basement.
