Excuse me while I vent!

Recommended Posts

I've just been informed that the new Academy 1/72 B-29 release contains a decal sheet with ALL the schemes from our 1/72 "Camouflaged B-29s" sheet! Now I can understand the duplication of one and maybe two schemes, but the whole sheet!? Come on, Academy... put a little of your own effort into research. If you had asked, I might have even given you the artwork, as our sheet was out of print. But now you've pissed me off! I was considering doing a reprint, but now there's no point in that. Take a look... the Academy decal schemes vs. ours.

Hmmm....If I were you I think I might be demanding they produce their "original" artwork that their decals were produced from for that kit. SInce when has ANY kit manufacturer given that many decal choices in a bomber kit? That's a mighty shady coincidence!

It's not like they don't have a history of copying other manufacturers' work; they used to copy Tamiya kits right down to the decal sheets.
