Response to Only person to blame is us...

...first, Revell is 'not' gone. The blame for all this
mess is the management of Hobbico who tried to bite off
more than it could chew and managed it badly.

RoG is owned by a PE firm and owns all the molds that both
Revells owned, including one can assume, the old Monogram stuff.

It also follows that the name Revell of Germany will revert to
just plain old Revell as there's no distinction necessary anymore.
I don't understand why anyone thinks something has disappeared or
that kit prices will suddenly rise because of what happened. It
also appears that the folks who ran RoG will still be running the
show. Their new 1/32 scale stuff is significantly less expensive
than their rivals and that includes shipping/distribution costs.

None of us know of course how things will progress but I don't see
any reason for a doom and gloom future for Revell kits.
...but that's just me.

I just like airplanes.
