Default 1/6 Scale Armour at Tankzone

Guys, am I slow off the mark or have you noticed Tankzone are now selling the 1/6 scale 21st Century Armour plus 1/6 scale metal upgrades! The 2 vehicles they currently have at this scale are the Stuart and the german Kettenrad (that tracked motorbike thing!).

PS they also have a large selection of 1/18 scale 21st century die cast models - they look pretty good, could they me converted to RC do you think?

It's about $2 to £1.. so yup, that $200 (approx.) Stuart is $500 from Tankzone.. hence why most of us brits here use Mato, eBay and other companies from overseas!

As to why, I'd like to cite clever inflation, tax, etc data.. but basically Tankzone is downright greedy! I could buy single HL's (no bulk discount) from Mato at their non-trade price, sell them over here for less than Tankzone and still make 70-80% profit! Don't think I haven't considered it
