They got the moulds cheap I spose, re-packaged the same thing and figured someone will by it.
I won;t.
But if they released something completely blowing the budget, like a Stirling in 1/48... I'd be in heaven.

I can't understand why they would do that. There's so many other subjects untouched.
Oh well, I suppose someone must want it.
I have no idea about the business of it all. I'm just a consumer, but then again, it's the consumer who keeps them in business...Hmm.
I'm happy with my old AM kits.Sorry Tamiya..
Good luck to them though. Hope it sells well so they work on something new next.

...catering to the US consumer's taste. Maybe Tamiya is looking at a demographic not solely contained within the 50 states?

why do we need another 1/48 P-51D, we've got the Monogram kit! (which at the time would have been about the same age as the AccMin Il-2 is now)
