It feels like BF new direction backwards into rehash resin and forwards (?) into flexible plastics will ultimately result in fewer sales. There are so many great new plastic vehicles out there in 15mm to consider going back to resin. Their 'old' plastic and metal figures were the best out there – the only reason to change would be profit – sadly I think it may be at a cost to their market share…

I prefer the heft and simplicity of building of the resin models 7 or 8 parts and your done, off to painting. I do love some of the plastic models, especially PSC, but I locked myself into purchasing the more accurately modeled M3/M5 Halftracks! What a mistake!!! did you see how many parts are involved? Couldn't they have molded the main vehicle in a more clever way other than 2 separate sides a front and a back, not including the floor of the vehicle, not to mention the numerous other parts to complete the model?! It's insanely involved to make just one half-track. However, having said that, I do like the fact that most of their models allow you to build multiple versions of a particular vehicle, for example; the Half-track is one, the Marder/Pz38t, another, and the new T-55AM2 allows you (6) different versions!!! Pretty cool, but all these plastic models are hugely more time intensive in assembling . . . just sayin'!!!

For me, building the models is a large part of the appeal. It scratches an itch that I can't otherwise satisfy, as I haven't the space for 1/35 tank kits!
