Did anyone stop to think how good of a thing this really might be in the long run? After the entire forum went crazy over the Fox body coupe roofline debacle, maybe Ford thought they better throw their hat in to make sure Revell doesn't mess this one up too.
Also, yeah, marketing or not, the side affect is giving the children the joy of something they made with their own hands and can be proud of. I saw something on here a few months ago where people were commenting on not caring if the hobby died out after they are gone. Opinions are opinions and this is America so, it is what it is. But my opinion is that it is a wonderful opportunity when you can pass the hobby down to kids, grandkids, nieces, nephews, a neighbor kid, or whatever. If you introduce a child to model cars, they will always remember that. And it's a fond memory that I am glad my daughter will have when I am dead and gone. If passing the hobby down through generations means fond memories, let's keep the ball rollin'.
