Quote from: Nick on May 27, 2022, 02:56:50 AMWhen you consider that a modern jet is nearly twice the size of a WW2 fighter then it makes sense that the costs are the same. It's the same workload for the mould designers and instruction writers, the box printers and the plastic manufacturers. The amount of plastic will vary but not by a huge amount.At the end is the question of how much can they sell the kit for, not what it should be priced at based on the scale.
Quote from: NARSES2 on May 29, 2022, 02:16:41 AM<snip>Development and production costs are a greater percentage of total costs than they are for 1/72 and larger kits so the differential isn't as great as you might expect. Plus 1/144 along with 1/32 seems to be quite fashionable at the moment.
Quote from: Old Wombat on May 29, 2022, 04:34:42 AMMy main point being; most of the cost of a model is in the design of the kit & the tooling, the cost of the plastic makes up very little of the production cost, even with the big kits, but does generate some variation in the expense of making the kit.
