Well done to PSC for taking the financial hit and re-doing their aircraft for the Battle of Britain game after the initial aircraft were made in a very soft plastic that easily bent and diapointed the kickstart backers.

Didn't hear that. Will have to look (is there a link?), well……yes indeed, very well done.

Hopefully Battlefront will follow suit and get rid of their equally awful soft plastic blob head infantry.
Well done PSC.

Where is a link for this or something? Thanks

Email sent to Kickstarter backers, aircraft models to be retooled and cast in hard plastic, expected to be done around March 18. Game will ship to backers with bendy planes, replacements sent when they are ready. And the retail version of the game on hold until the hard plastic aircraft are ready

that's pretty impressive to be honest. Big financial impact most likely, they deserve to recover and rebound big time.

Actually, the cost implication will be minimal as the injection mould tooling is the expensive part. Simply changing materials type used to create the models will have a very minimal cost attached to it as unit prices for moulding aircraft in the new material will be very small.

If they needed new tooling because of model/tool design flaws that would be expensive but simply re-moulding in a new material will be relatively cheap though obviously the cost cant be recovered.

Although the time and logistics it takes to sort everyone out will probably carry much more of a cost implication!

I do feel for them as they probably had the material recommended to them as the best material to mould in for this kind of work. No doubt the tooling and moulding will have been made and carried out in China or somewhere else in the far east.

As a backer, I am very pleased by this decision!
