Great way to pump up the model count with only slight variations to a design

Glen - interested to know your thoughts on the the kit quality and over build? Hopefully the same top-of-the-line quality and manual still apply to the raw nitro.

So if a new paint scheme equals a new model then why is the Goblin 700 Drake not a model in the sequence?

And shouldn’t the RAW come before the Maverick?

It is a top quality kit. Everything fits together properly, components look like quality machining. Manual is super nice and calls out every assembly in perfect English. Super easy to build. I still need to install the electronics which usually takes me as much time as building the model.

I didn't look that close but assumed the "30" I can see on my Kraken was actually "3D", guess not.

I'm not disputing the source of the list, but it does seem rather arbitrary what they class as a new model and whet they dont. For example the Havok was just a Sport with a new paint scheme and the 3 blade head off the KSE, and the sport itself was just a Comp with cheaper G10 frames.

Align used to get criticised for bringing out new models that were just the old model with a few minor changes. SAB seem to be taking this stratergy to a whole new level.

Not a criticism of SAB, just an observation. The buying public seem to like the constant stream of new models so I cant blame SAB for giving it's buyers what they seem to want.
