Response to Not quite true

Why, then, does an Asian kit, with, say no better engineering than most makers then charge a pirates fee for something the same size as the 30.00 Revell of Germany Ventura or Arado 196? Why then, does a model kit from one of those manufacturers cost 2 or even 3 times as much.... It's not anything except .... (using best Sam Kinnison voice) AAAAAAAAAAAAH ! YOU'RE GETTING BENT OVERRRRR!

I quit buying. Period. I've bought the new Ventura, and the RG Arado 196... and dang it... I'll go to a thrift store and buy a used plastic spoon too...or I'll buy the liner out of an old refrigerator and file one out... if that's what it takes to not get ripped off....

We're getting the shaft
We've thrown away our manufacturing infrastructure for consumer goods, labor and transportation costs from overseas are catching up, the dollar is dropping, their currencies are appreciating, and now we're getting the shaft...
