Re: Limited Edition Kits
I see both your points. We're all "collector's" until we build a given
kit in our collection.
I, too, have purchased FSM and other limited edition kits on Ebay.
When I switched from HO to O, I was pleased when I recouped
my "investment" in rare kits. Had I been undermined by a re-release, I
still would have sold them, but not for as much.
At the same time, I am thrilled to have, for example, a TY Pool Hall,
which I never could have afforded if I had to outbid the rich folks on
If I'm lucky enough to be able to have a Boarding House and Lakeside
Grocery without spending my annual model budget on each, I'll be
thrilled. And these are STILL rare enough that they're fetching nice
sums on Ebay. Not all kits will ever be re-run, anyway.
