      I was merely trying to show what this costs.. If you have the skills and
      patience as Daniel has and a good source who has the tools, you get away
      with a lot less... But when you want to make a business of it, you have
      to bill it like this. I admire all the kit makers, it must be passion
      who drives them, cause it can't be money...

      The big issue is that to many compares theses prices with Fleishmann,
      Märkling, LGB or other mainstream makers. But they make thousands of the
      same article, there is no way a small kit maker can compete with that.
      As always it is the preparation and good tools to make molds etc, which
      make the difference. And... of course there is alot more HO / G scale
      buyers, than in our little cute scale.. But, if everyone was building in
      our scale, it wouldn't be as much fun... or :)
