I am glad the Chinese kits are cheaper in the UK because they are not cheap here in the States and alot of models will not buy their kits due to the prices and the accuracy of the subject until it is discounted or goes on sale. I don't mind paying a fair price for any kit as long as you don't have to spend a small fortune on update sets to correct problems that should not have occured if the R&D would have been done correctly, and not buy using inaccurate drawings and photos with out looking at the real deal as this is how most of the Chinese do most of their research. The Chinese best subjects seem to be Soviet/Russian equipment any thing else is a throw of the dice. I know that they produce kits of subjects that alot of mainstream model manufactures will not even think about doing a kit, but if it is the only boat in town try and make sure you do a accurate one. I like Soviet/Russian armour subjects and enjoy building these kits, so this why I get a little up set when you spend $50.00 to $75.00 on a kit and still have to buy another $50.00 worth of update parts to make it look correct. Modeling is not a kids hobby anymore and hasen't been for some time as we all know, so I just like to get the best bang for my buck and the Chinese are more interested in the dollars then the product as some dumb Yankee will by the kit anyway. I just like to get a good kit for a fair price that I can enjoy in building, which is what everybody expects and wants.
And that is my last word on the subject,
