About Prof.Sakai

I am Prof. Sakai's friend.
I will see his HP and FB. And write.
I participated in the event exhibition with him many times in the past.
Recently, I and he only meet once in a year of "Shizuoka Hobby Show".
Always, me and he are the same table.
His participation was the last day of the three days including preparation in 2018.
We talked for a day.

Over the last two years, complaints for him came to me from time to time on the net.
Every time I tell him the content.
Because he and I live far too far, I can not meet easily.
Me and he are about 160 kilometers away by car more than two hours.

He is not a bad person, but to fulfill his promise is very slow.
There is also an early period.
I ordered him "Sdkfz 250/3 Radio Set" three and a half ago (May 2014), and I paid him a fee.
But that item arrived at me in January 2018.
There is no doubt that he is lazy.
And he is a whim.
Many Japanese forgive his bad habits, but they are surprised.
There are a lot of Japanese who speak ill of him.
I am on his side. And I defend him.
I am also surprised by him.

He says as follows.

Last two years I had stopped my business by my private reason.
If you had claim, propose, complain about dealing while that period, you would send me mail please. orz

Re: About Prof.Sakai

I'm a friend of Professor Sakai.
He is a pioneer who produces 1/6 scale models with 3D printers.

The geographical distance between me and him is great.
It takes more than 2 hours one way by car to drive on the highway.
The last time I met him was May 13, 2018.
I was lucky to reply to my email once every five times.
The reason is that he has made many mistakes.
His 3D printers often break.

However, he contacted me yesterday.
He started a new system.
That is, he only designs and outsources the printing and collection of 3D printers to an outside company.
No more trouble with him.
