It might seem trivial, but is there anyone else disgusted with the
latest pricing of some of these kits? Here there's probably $2.00
worth of plastic, and maybe $2.00 in white metal. Plus $.50 for
decals. And we're paying around (after the exchange) $15-20 for a
small kit! Oh sure, let's hear the exscuse "but it's a limited run".
Give me a break. That's how they snare us in! And of course we have
to buy it, because no one else will make it. It's the same with the
$40 Hannover. There is no way that the "younger generation" can get
into WW1. Sure, they can buy the old Revell's and Airfix's, but
these come on and off the market so often, there might be times where
the only things available are the Pegasus'. I'm convinced C.Gannon
is making it big. When charging in upwards of $40 for his Blue Max
line, and the cost of the latest Pegasus, it's kind of easy to see.

Sorry. Just had to rant and rave. I'm tired on not being able to
buy "everything" because it's out of budget.
