edit to add: now that I look at it further, all the cheap ones are from China. the normal price seems to be more like around 35. but to me brings up the question: from China? does that mean out the back door of the production facility or what? or maybe a Chinese exporter is buying them there real cheap and distributing them via ebay?
More like Home Market Discount, remember Trumpeter is based in China. When you buy a foreign kit through your LHS you're paying to keep the lights on at the Middle Man's place too.
Similar to how us guys who use HLJ can by $92 LaFerrari kits for less than $40.
