Just my 2 pennies,

But I find it kind of amusing that Japanese model companies like to make kits of Japanese subjects, but in the real car world the Japanese LOVE importing American machinery! I've seen reports of some of their carshows and they rival Americans in their turnout of all kinds of American cars.

So when people say they're missing the boat, I say yes, but it's American car kits over there. As well as Japanese cars over here.

I guess the grass is always greener......

Very true.  Over here, we're fascinated by European and Japanese cars.

But it's really not that surprising that Hasegawa does a lot of Japanese stuff.   The American kitmakers do mostly American subjects,  Airfix does mostly British subjects, and Heller skews heavily towards French subjects as well.  We have a soft spot for the local boys.
