Re: The price of resin kits vs. plastic kits
If, as I suspect, the hangardeck is one level too high, correcting that would be a total rebuild. The elevators on the kit are separate pieces from the flightdeck, meaning that it is possible to construct the model with the elevators in the lowered position. With this error, you either have to totally rebuild the model, or glue the elevators in the up position, totally wasting the hangar interior and separate elevators. And for the record, I would be just as dissatisfied with a Flyhawk styrene kit if it had the same level of error.
You can look above - e.g. a comparison with FlyHawk and again the price used as a argument. The correction of the deck at the rear (and perhaps the bow) is not a total rebuilt. I agree that these are annoying errors and I understand people who therefore do not want to buy the kit. But I do not understand those who argue with price, because that is typical for resin kits.
