Quote from: John Howling Mouse on January 31, 2009, 04:24:38 PMWent to one of my local shops recently and was surprised that no kits had pricetags anymore. I asked what's up and they claimed that they went to UPC barcode scanners because they've had two price hikes as the Cdn dollar has taken a dive. I said "You're increasing prices on kits that have been on the shelves for years, kits that you bought at completely different exchange rates?" I took my business to the other shops in town who don't do that. Funny how model prices did not go down in my city even when our dollar was on par with the States (and even above the USD a couple of times in 2008).Wonder how it possibly works that everybody's currency suddenly drops in value as compared to "some other currency"

Quote from: NARSES2 on February 02, 2009, 04:01:48 AMI was stunned at MK yesterday. Picked up Roden's new 1/32 SPAD VIIC, nice kit but nearly £60 ! Now that's plane daft. The range used to be about £30. Now take the fall of the £ against the Euro and I could deal with maybe £40 - but £60. Needless to say it didn't get bought.
Quote from: viper29_ca on February 03, 2009, 10:03:34 AMPrices for kits have gone up across the board. They say it is due to the increase in the price of the oil for not only styrene manufacture, but for transportation. I believe this, and alot of people are complaining that the price of oil is now down, why don't the kit prices go down as well??
