I am a strong believer in quality of all models or any other manufactured merchandise. Certainly would pay a higher premium for my model railway requirements, however the markets dictates prices that customers are prepared to pay and main reason that all goods in retail outlets show the label "Made in China".
It is all very well to encourage cheap and nasty made products - what happens when all UK manufacturers go to the wall or bought over by Asian companies. Where is the UK worker going to find employment and in turn the finances to buy such items as railway models made in China.
The UK can not afford to continually buy cheap imports to the expense of UK employment eroding away - my main reason for buying made in the UK and in this instance paying £160 for a Hornby model.
