Of course, the market sets all prices perfectly

Scale hobby kits exist bc there is a market to sell them in. The producers find a price that provides enough profit.
Competition keeps the prices as low as possible. If they charge too much they eat their product.
It really is a perfect system.
Not everyone can afford everything. Nothing wrong with saving up!
its no wonder to me that the hobby is now only for adults!! look at the insane money it costs to build a frikin model..my nephew not too many years back wanted to do some car modeling but was shut out because by the time you buy a model at around 25-30 bucks ( thats a cheap one) and all the paints and glue your near a hundred bucks!! AK wants 7-9 bucks for 1 little bottle of weather wash!! over 10 with shipping..we better get our cooperate acts together or this hobby is gona be DEAD after the baby boomers are gone!! PPG paint or someone needs to step up and save our hobby!! im done..Jay
