Notwithstanding most of shapeways pricing now seems over the top, you do wonder who a) they are appealing to, and b) who has the money to pay?
Maybe i'm just getting old?

I have found a good selection of Sweet plane kits on Amazon Marketplace from Japan, but while some are decently priced, a great many are listed at £50+ and this doesn't include postage.

Following on with that thought, everyone here knows how much I love Sweet kits, and numerous Hurricanes are either sitting on the shelf or in the stash. But this evilBayer in Japan might be pushing it a tad too far. $AUS200+ for the kit, then a further $AUS170 for postage? :shock:

I think I would want it hand delivered by a giant Gundam at that price.

Wonder how much of the real steel planking you could have purchased for 950 quid in 1943? And that had free postage, too.
