Like others here, I would gently suggest that your view is too pessimistic Graham.  Tamiya and ZM routinely exceed the £100 threshold and Trumpeter comes close. Many of us choose to add AM accessories (admittedly these can be bought after purchase (or in the case of the Lancaster IP BEFORE ;))) that also bumps up the ££.  The armour chaps routinely pay big ££ for their muddy clanky things.  HpH exceed £200 fairly routinely and WNW are also well into the 3 figure ballpark.

 

Stick with 32. Or do both...

OK I take your point, maybe I should jack my prices up to HPH levels perhaps keeping my Kit below the £100 mark is sending out the wrong message.

Kit prices are becoming a life style choice. A Lanc will be the same cost as a return ferry trip from Portsmouth to Santander with the Kawasaki. Start adding the same amount on aftermarket bits and bobs, that's getting close to all my hotel bills and food in Spain for a fortnight......

Judging by pictures of your breakfasts I would have thought your food bill considerably higher Tim!  And a Lanc lasts forever, not just till lunchtime!!

Subject choice will very often make a big difference.

Doing an 'obscure' subject that not many people know about will only generate a certain amount of limited sales regardless of scale.

Perhaps that's why we get more P-51's. Spittys and 109's because they're better known by the public.

If you produce an 'obscure' model other than in IM then price it out at 50 kits produced and then see how it goes after that. 

Z-M and HK Models went out on a limb with the Do335, I wonder what the sales figures are for that one?

Off topic, but I've been trying (unsuccessfully) to reach you, Gordon. Can you contact me via PM or email please?
