It's sure more "convincing" than the Spit,to me at least...at 8 grands still seems priced to the moon when seen from a modeler's point of view,but even a modeler/collector could be very tempted and/or,if he cannot afford or doesn't want to treat him to that, day-dream about owning such a nicely built model !
Maru,I perfectly got your drift.....we,as collectors (and I'm sure that there's plenty here), look at our treasures from our point of view and wouldn't mind paying the extra $$$ if we badly want something and the he seller won't budge,a nice example would be WW2 militaria and uniforms collecting...collectors don't mind paying thousands of dollars for a tunic or a cap that many people would consider 70 years old rags!
The more I consider that the more I convince myself that Nagao-san's work deserves to be a well retributed professional modeler;the question is...how much Data Link charge on Nagao's models or,rather,will Nagao-san get what he truly deserves?Ok...none of our biz here,but I hope he'll make a good living out of it!
We're looking at 1/32 models here,but who knows if he also build in smaller scales as well?
