Fodder?

Yah, I know whatcha mean.

I'm dying for a 1/48 series of WWII experimentals from one of the good model companies like Hasegawa - XP-54, 55, 56, and the P-47 experimentals, the XP-47H and J, and the XP-72.

not to anger anyone but what I would most love to see is a price reduction in all lines of modeling
lower the prices and cut S&H down a bit and you the seller will profit by more sales
zi can almost have a real 1 on 1 scale tiger tank for what we have to pay for a 1-35 scale model the price of kits plus the price of S&H puts the price to much for the older generation
had to get that off my chest
thanks

'Tis a valid point. Many people feel the hobby is dying because the prices are so high that only well-off adults with disposable income can buy kits. As older modelers die off, and no young ones are joining the hobby, plastic modeling may go the way of the dodo.

I too would like to see an injection kit of a AH-56A Cheyenne in any scale available.
Definitely! 1/48 would be awesome. Anigrand has a resin one in 1/72 I've been meaning to check out.

Yep, there are some very good Tamiya kits available now, but by the time they reach the UK, they're unreasonably expensive in my view. You can often find a 40-year-old, out-of-production kit, from a defunct model company, cheaper than the cost of a newly mass-produced Tamiya kit.
