  1. Profitability always. Not only the company has to earn more that it spends but also the cash (after retail, wholesale and distributor margins deductions of course) must come in fast enough to be able to finance future projects. Often customers say "You'll sell bucket loads of the Gizmo Mk.4. Do it !"... yeah but a bucket load is 2000, 5000 or 10000 kits ? Of course producers most often don't say how many kits they sell in a particular time frame, how much a project costs or how many injections their toolings can suffer.
  2. Sorry I didn't check my reply before posting. Did you discuss with an injected plastic kit producer to learn about the business ? To know the constraints ?
  3. Value-for-money of the HPM/PJ kit isn't quite outstanding. Are you familiar with the kit ? It has been discussed in several places. Did you discuss with a kit producer to learn about its characteristics ?
  4. Pretty good thanks I can understand that. The 23BN has a short skinny nose. I prefer the 27 and the K in particular.
  5. Think positively: they could have reboxed the MiG-23BN...
  6. Eduard produces mostly detailing sets, not much correction sets.
  7. 1/72nd Nanchang Q-5 from Trumpeter

    I find it nicer looking than the MiG-19S.
  8. One kit will be israeli, other will be sri-lankan perhaps. First box Second box Same thing on my two kits but it's a non-issue: two LGBs are to be used, not all four.
  9. Thanks for the warning. I've checked my kits. Well one kit will certainly not be israeli and the other will certainly not be ecuadorian.
  10. Nope... where's the build ?!?!
  11. Which ones ? Are they "model related" (accuracy) or "kit related" (detail level, buildability) ?
  12. Given length and wing span ok, overlay to these ok (I don't know if the drawings are accurate though) and the omega canopy cross-section seems to be there. The Albatro may be pretty good Albatros.
