Re: New kits released by Dodo: Asheville class gunboat
Astronomical? These are resin kits complete with PE, brass barrels (in case of Asheville) and decals. Dodo Models is one of the best resin producers existing - and the quality is for sure superior to any plastic kit. E.g. the Asheville kit contains parts for two models that is 25 € per model - and this is a kit imported, i.e. with extra tax. The price is pretty normal for a resin kit, even Chinese kits of this class have a similar price (but not quality). I do not know what their price in the US is, where Dodo Models is located.
And what is wrong with the Type 082-II? On photos of the real ships, not much equipment is visible. See e.g. here
