I try to stay out of these types of threads, but. Basically every car company makes SUV’s, do we really need another one? Clearly the market answer is yes we do and every company wants their own piece of the pie. Why? Because they are what is selling these days, they weren’t 40 years ago, and may not be 40 years from now. At this moment they are the big sellers. Notice they all come in same colours too, from brand to brand you can get a silver SUV from almost every manufacturer. Not so with minivans anymore, only a handful still making them, who knows how well they sell. But I can sure make an educated estimate of the ratio of SUV’s to minivans I see rolling around the streets near me. Let’s see Jaguar, Ferrari, or even Ford’s reply to a request for a minivan in my favourite shade of purple. I’d also like it in stock at least three local dealerships, and I ‘need’ it for less $20000 with 0% financing. Modellers seem to think the industry is a collective where we make kits that don’t compete against each other. If I was starting a modelling company today, I’d choose a F-14, Me-109, P-51, or F-16 as my first release. Otherwise there won’t be a second release. There is a very good reason why we are not up to our knees in Judy’s, Val’s, and P-36’s, because if anyone did tool one the warehouse people would be buried in unsold kits, and the manufacturer up to their eyeballs in debt.
