The reason why I bring this up is that my friend and I just had a talk and his view differs from mine. He and I grew up in the Golden Age of A.M.T. Star Trek kits and over the years we both have aquired a large collection of collectable models. Well now my friend feels with all these reissues it will kill the value of certain special collectable models. The Original Interplanetary U.F.O. he has he believes is no longer worth that much money. I told him about the Enterprise D repop next year and he says when it comes again that the original model will also be worth alot less. He and I are different, I loved these kits back when they were in their prime and I still build them and he doesn't. At this point I believe he considers them more of an investment and feels hes losing money with the reissiues. My friend Considered K-7 Space Station a nice collectable and when I told him it too was being reissued he said there goes its collectable value. I still enjoy these reissues of the classic A.M.T. Star Trek kits and I will continue to buy and build them. Even though my friend may not agree with me, I am greatful for having these models again. I don't look at their collector value. I love them and that's their value to me, Guy Schlicter.
