  1. jacobus added a post in a topic Italeri is asking for new kit subject requests.   

    revell ask the same thing some years ago [ 2 years? ]
    i know that it is a lot of work to collect al the vote,s etc but you can see as a company , we are have something new in a couple of years , silence
    italeri have said , a new freezer [ kitbasshing from different kits ] no new
    and yes , licence to make it , but if you bring a model that,s no longer  exist you dont need a licence [ thats what i have reed in some special book ]
    there are a lot of example,s on the road , al over the world , so let that famous panel look by the real trucks and figured out how it is 
    not from picture,s , its nice for some details
    where i work the boss said , no sitting by the phone , go to the place where it is and talk and look in the real world outside your office
    thats my opinion and perhaps i see it wrong but after al these years i hope that something wil be done with al idee,s and plans
    and a new kit on the shelf that we can say , whow you make a very nice kit
