Yeah, the prices are absolutely ridiculous! We are rapidly moving towards a minimum of €60 for any kit, even for something really old and small like a Sd.Kfz.250. And the more popular kits like Tigers, (Jagd-)Panthers, certain Pz.Kpfw.IV are starting at €70 to €75. That's just crazy. I'm not doing that. Ever. Especially not if they keep taking out parts and increasing prices. It's the World upside down. They managed to turn some of their truly great original releases into something mediocre AND almost double the price on some... it's really sad...
But there are those people that respond to our well founded complaints with great answers like "well, you don't have to buy it" or "yeah yeah, we've heard it all before" or even "the kits are completely worth it so stop whining". To those particular people I would like to say:
You are absolutely right!
and good luck with your heavily overpriced and deflated kits.
I, however, WILL voice my opinion about Dragon's current strategy of alienating a large part of their (once) loyal customer base, whether anyone likes it or not. You know why? Because I actually care!
Besides, it's a free World, man!
If everyone keeps quiet and keeps buying their kits, Dragon will never "get" that they have taken a wrong turn. Obviously they are fully aware of what they are doing and they will keep pushing the limit until they are stopped, in any way.
Oh, and if some of "those" people I mentioned have a problem with what I'm saying:
"well, you don't have to read it"
"yeah yeah, I've heard it all before"
"My remarks are completely well founded so stop whining"
Fabian, that remark you made about running out of storage space made me actually laugh out loud because I am SO recognizing what you are saying!
That guy is truly greatly skilled! I am definitely going to be taking a look at his other work
And yeah, I am a very slow builder as well
But that doesn't stop me from liking what I am doing
