Not exactly true. I've seen a lot of oddball stuff offered by such manufacturers on ebay. I suppose they can make a profit off of *one* model sold, so it's in their interest to offer as many types of models as possible.Stargazer2006 said:Well, the Asian-made display models scarcely depict little-known projects or alternate configurations.
I went to ebay to find a few such listings to prove my point... but there are *too* *many*. Go to ebay and do a search for VTOL and MODEL. My search produced 47 hits, about half (eyeballing) are the Asian slavemade type, and about two thirds of those are of the "unbuilt projects" variety. A lot of *those* are actually unbuilt *models,* you win the auction, you pays your money, and *then* they go to the bother of building the model. Stuff like the CL-379, the Ryan "VTOL F-104," the Bell "XF-109," c an all be yours if you pay up and wait.
