Tom, I don't think the majority have a complaint about Avant making sure a quality Kit is released. It seems most thought the development was further along when the model was shown at IRCHA. Now I can only speak for my self but it seemed that when I was first exposed to the Mastros at IRCHA. It seemed that they had a tested prototype and were entering production. It seemed like the kits would be released in the fall.
Really dont understand how people can complain about a company having this policy. Yes you may have to wait a little longer, but I can't see how its not worth it. Just my .02
After the sequence of events it seems apparent that the models presented at IRCHA were just recently put together prototypes and for the most part untested. So what I think has most people riled up is the lack of upfront status or progress. But from a competitive nature this may need to be kept from other manufactures. But based on the last announcement it seems the updates have caught up with a possible release date.
I will wait in hope that the final released kit will be built with the proper material and tolerances to provide us with a precision low maintenance model.
Tom and the rest of the Avant team keep up the good work on keeping us informed with the progress and tips we need to facilitate a proper build.
Happy New Year
