No, the quote is accurate. Up to kit 17, they were very buildable kits.

They parted company and Chris started Pegasus. Merlin got worse and Pegasus
got better. Talking with John Adams a number of years ago, he would not fit
in with the rest of the WW1 community. I have no idea what has happened to
