Default New "Who would buy this rubbish" range Flugworks 4



a range of new "luft 46" aircraft as announced by a major uk retailer and possibly others.

the only thing I can say is "who would possibly buy this crap" (the above example is at gbp 40 = usd 55).

my best guess is that the manufacture cost is so low and the markup so high that it is aimed squarely at the idiot market.

Give me enough time and Play-Doh and I might manufacture a better looking model than this

It's far to early to make a decision on quality given the picture is 'a hand made prototype". I know several Luftwaffe collectors who will get these if they are comparable to the Luft-x releases

Shouldn't a hand made prototype be better quality than the production run though? Same with other diecasts, like Corgi, where the hand made prototypes sometimes look miles better than the real deal you can get in stores?

As you said 'sometimes' they do. Judging one way or the other now is inappropriate.

Not in this case. I got a picture of the production model.
