Think it will be a hard sell Greg, better find the best sales wrap to push this idea through...
Maybe all the knowledgeable '33-34 Ford people on board, should stick their heads together and form a think tank and build a case on why an all new kit and what the content from it and it's siblings will have to be.
This could send a positive vibe towards people in the industry, who're tired off all of the negativity vented here....
I used to work on prototype vehicles and pre-production vehicles, on for a volume automotive manufacturer, which cars were and still are a compromise, due to the fact that they have to be sold in a certain price range/segment.
The model kit industry doesn't realy differ, they to position their products into a certain price range, the question is what do you do when due to circumstances beyond you control it seems you're not ably to get to get it a 100 percent right for the lunatic fringe (us), but good enough for the 99% of the core segment you cater, sink more money into the project you know you never gonna recoup, or let it slide?
Think as a business on this one, not as a modeler!
The essence is that you and I not really differ in opinion, we both want the most bang for our hobby buck, but what to us is a hobby, to them is an everyday struggle to survive....

Tom is terrified that when he opens this mint kit, the tires etched into the clear parts. (happened to me on a few occasions, hence Im' not buying sealed vintage kits anymore.)
Now in his mind it's still a perfect, time capsule.
