  1. It's more about observing than knowing Hasegawa F-16 egg plane... http://i181.photobucket.com/albums/x159/123bretland/123bretland035/P1000538_zpsd2c8f3b8.jpg Freedom Model Kits F-16... It's not the same "philosophy".
  2. These aren't egg planes and that's what makes them interesting in my eyes. Egg planes are based on an egg shape with bits and pieces corresponding to a particular aircraft. Those cutie models are rather caricatures of particular aircrafts. I much prefer those as they are more respectful of the subject.
  3. Tamiya ? Not Hasegawa (and Airfix) rather ?
  4. A matter could be that the canopy rear frame may be too narrow for an early Scooter. Narrow like the M's canopy rear frame.
  5. It seems to me the reinforcement parts will be PE.
  6. I wish you could find a kit producer that accepts to discuss what are real sales figures nowadays. I'd divide your estimates by four.
  7. It depends on AMK's distribution network. Producing 5000 kits is one thing but the really important thing is that those 5000 boxes end up at the customer's workbench/stash. If the kit is difficult to obtain, incomes will be slow to come and this may delay future projects.
  8. Communication is a double edged sword. Recipient may not react as expected by the poster. I guess AMK restricted access to the FB group to control communication.
  9. It all comes down to how much money the company is willing to spend / capable of spending on the tooling.
  10. For some modellers a model kit is more than a bunch of plastic parts to glue together, they expect it to depict the characteristic shapes of the real subject they are familiar with. They can get somewhat frustrated because the designer may have neglected some aspects of the real subject. The positive side though is that such modellers can eventually collaborate with kit producers on the design of the kit to tackle accuracy issues before the tooling is done. It wouldn't cross the mind of a casual modellers.
