I've built them all...in my opinion the Pegasus Phonix kits are on par with the MAC kits, but the MAC kits are expensive, so if you offer the Pegasus kits at a reasonable price, they would sell. The Pegasus Albatros kits are nice, but don't hold up to the Roden kits. But you mentioned that they need new decals...how about offering the Pegasus kits with an expanded decal sheet with multiple marking options? That was always the biggest shortcoming of the Pegasus kits in my opinion, they came with a very simple decal sheet with one choice. The Roden kits are nice that they give you 5-10 options for a variety of markings. And yes, a big decal sheet with lots of markings would raise the price, but lots of us would pay a bit more for the luxury (remember the Blue Rider vacuform Albies? They were popular because they had a decal sheet with 20+ marking options)

Hi guys, I wanted to ask for your views about the Pegasus 1/72nd kts of the Albatros D.I/II and D.III. When I took over Pegasus I inherited over a hundred of each, all with shot decals. I can reprint decals, but I wondered how you would rate these accuracy wise in comparison to the Roden ones, and if you think I could still sell with new decals them if I priced them under £5 each?

The same applies to the Pegasus Phonix D.I vs the Mac kit, again I have some but have never listed them as the decals need replacing.
