Response to Tasca's pricing policy
"Expensive" is a relative word and to be meaningful needs a comparison to become clear. Tasca kit retail prices in the USA and Canada range from $46.95 to 79.95 with the majority at $61.95. We check the prices of new kits from other makers from time to time and have seen that our Tasca retail prices are competitive.
Secondly, Tasca does all their work in house (except for box printing). This includes doing their own research and making their own molds. They work closely with some modelers for research information. Their kits may very well be the best armor kits in the world for accuracy and fit. These facts support the retail prices and our sales.
Third, our policy is to support the local brick and mortar hobby shops as we think that this is where the future of the hobby will be and not with internet discounters. By setting the retail price, it allows them to stock kits from us so that modelers can inspect the kit before buying it.
Set retail prices are the wave of the future. If you haven't seen this yet, check out Sony and Samsung's new set retail price policy on TV sets. Also Apple. Tommy Hilfiger is now exclusive to Macy's.
For those of you who may be interested, check out the 2007 Supreme Court decision "PSKS vs. Leegins" which overturned the 1911 price fixing law. Thanks for your support and
Pacific Coast Models, Inc.
