Sure does happen in the R/C world. Seems every new release is a bit more than
the last. Look at the pricing on Balsa USA's larger kits. The J-3 and Stearman
are significantly more than the Pup. As to increasing kit quality, I am sure it
is there but I have heard the Stearman uses the same cowling as the Pup. Not
exactly scale.

My only real problem with the new Eduard Hannover release is that they
have really escalated the price. When you see all the Eduard releases
on one shelf, the price spiral in only 18 months or so is amazing...
Most of the earlier kits can still be had for about 20-22 dollars..
Granted theres a lot of nice stuff in the new Hannover kit, but a
50% increase in cost?? ( I got the Hannover kit for 34.00)
