I don't get it either. If anything, this may sound like the death of the MG
line. We'll now have to put up with kits that have the MG look, with the
panel lines and what have you, but no true MG quality in the kit itself.
Any kit that had potential to become a MG kit will now appear as a dinky
1/144 scale kit and you all know since the very beginning 1/144 scale kits
are targeted to kids, while the 1/100 scale kits are for the less-than-
casual modelers...
