Thank you. Japan might be a market for it, as they even buy a lot of launch vehicle and spacecraft plastic model kits (the Lambda-4S, H-2, IKAROS, Tenma, Hayabusa, etc.), which--even when depicting U.S. rockets and spacecraft, never sold spectacularly here. Aoshima makes a lot of their plastic kits of launch vehicles and spacecraft. Even paper models of Japanese launch vehicles (some of which are made for optional conversion to model rocket power; some of them are downloadable from websites) are popular there.
