The point I'm trying to make is that it is very easy to sit behind a computer screen and criticize a company for how they do business when they don't do something that might be expected. Perhaps the complete picture should be considered before throwing out complaints.


I am with Derek on this one. Producing models for sale is 1st a business and not a charity case. If the economics and it is in line with your business model you do it. If I had to guess the Matra MS11 with Ebbro is a test run to see if a Niche mfg. can support a small group of hobbyist.

Does anyone know the expected release date? I'm itching and I don't wanna miss out. Most of my shops have the kit listed as preorder / not available, etc. One shop lists ist as available from 30.4.2020. Wim, do you have details from your contact on that?
Cheers,
Roman

Those wheels are looking super nice, unfortunately sold out actually. Anyone knowing a source where to get them? Studio Rosso is the manufacture who has done them.

I have worked for more than one company that makes line production, particularly building those lines. I may say that refurbish your production line for a different thing, even if you have the tools and the machines ready in a hangar, does cost a lot of money and effort.
Dammit, if a garage producer has to think before re-releasing a bunch of resin stuff, decal sets or PE shhets, just imagine this.
Let's enjoy what they make, because sales of racing models are so slimmer than AFVs.
ANd again, if Ebbro decides to make something else at 1/12, so welcome :D
