It would be a lowdown dirty shame if there was no open bomb bay option - but the doors are obviously molded shut, as per that picture.

It was deemed probably too complex for a limited run mould.

Well if they cannot mold the bomb bay they aren't going to be able to mold the cockpits or gear bays, any of which are more complex than the bomb bay.  Which would mean they are going to need resin (and I would bet they have already decided to use resin bits for the cockpit).  So, it just comes down to cost.  If there is no bomb bay, the only reason would be to keep the final price down - but leaving the bay out (if, indeed that is the plan) seems like such a waste considering the scale.

Yeah, that too.
