Well, we need a decision and rules on this matter.
Sometime ago I included this kit into 'Italeri' company, as it was told to me to proceed with the 'Italaerei' kits.
Now, somebody opened 'Italaerei' company with three kits, two of them duplicated, already included under 'Italeri' label.
What we do? Do we open new company for each name change?
To merge or not to merge, that's the question.....

at the bottom of the Italeri profile page you can read:
Multiple versions of the company name Italeri can be found on the web.
These variants include: 'Italaerei','Italerie'.

And what we do with other companies? Such as 'ESCI' & 'ESCI/ERTL', or 'Matchbox' & 'Matchbox/AMT'

- ESCI/ERTL and ESCI are for me the same, the name would be ESCI (with synonym attached ESCI/ERTL)... reasoning: It is the ESCI brand, part of the ERTL group.
- AMT/ERTL is for me AMT, reasoning: It is the AMT brand, part of the ERTL group.
- Matchbox/AMT is for me Matchbox... same reasoning.

my opinion... open to change it... as long as we have a good reasoning behind it (which is simple)

Revell is now part of Hobbyco, it remains Revell for me... if in 2 years they add a small "Hobbyco" below the logo it remains Revell

Matchbox kits released under Revell label, because Revell bought these are Revell. The brand Matchbox is gone.

sounds good! would it be a compromise to have a timeline on company profile pages. So from year x to y you see the AMT logo, next it turns into AMT/ERTL. So people know that AMT profile pages isalso for AMT/Ertl?
