Thank you for all work you are doing to improve your kits . Its very unusual to find companies doing this , and it is appreciated by us , your customers . Thank you too , for asking us for our feed back on what your doing ,  we understand if some of the things we come up with are a little out side of what you can or want to do , but thanks for asking . Relating to HOffmn's post , if I had a dollar for every model kit I bought that had  the pieces inside the box to  match the picture on the box top , I'ld have a lot more money than I do now.  Check out some of the newer Dragon 1/35 repops , they removed all the photo etch , metal barrels and idi link track , but the box still says you get them  ::)

I echo Ripley's comments (though I have never bought a Dragon kit ^__^).

Agreed. Much better to show us what you want to do and get some feedback before actually producing the product. Wouldn't be too good to produce something and get criticised after the event. I hope we don't get so annoying you give up on asking for the feedback!

One of the very few complaints I'd have about a rubicon model is the box.

Following on from what others have said above, nowhere on the box does is show a completed model.

Only the 3D front picture and the other side theres only the drawing on the back, which may become a bit more redundant once you release your decal guides. .

Although I don't mind the front images (I actually like them), something on the back to show off your kits would be nice.

Warlord for example only use images on their resin kits (although they use paintings on front/images on rear of their plastic kits)

Or you could always do something similar to what GW did serveral years back and carry on doing the front covers like you are now, but inserting the actual model into the image.

Love that Stummel kit . Hopefully the figure sprues from these kits will be made available  , really don't need a mortar track or 2.8cm gun , but could really use the figures for conversions

Quite sure the price for the complete expansion lot is more or less the same price as a "normal" weapon team!

The M4A3 looks like a lot of fun - so many options and extras.  I have plans for at least 4 of them.  When will these kits be released?

Spend a lot of time and efforts on the M4 Digital Library project. 
The M4A3 is the first product from this project.  The rest of the
M4 releases will be as fun too!

Scheduled to be release end of this month, early April at retail.

Great - can't wait.

It's a big thing for a kit to be "fun".  That means more than just accurate or well designed.  It looks as though the M4A3 will be really enjoyable to play around with, straight out of the box.  I think it'll be popular.
