An ode to modeling (in haiku)

Farewell Tamiya

A new Dragon kit awaits

Your moulds are too old

__

Ah, Dragon Models

A sea of parts, nothing fits

Leisure lies elsewhere

__

Then there is Revell,

What? Flash? In 2015?

My search continues

__

What of Airfix then?

That way lies only madness.

Come back Tamiya!

Modelling is fine.
Just don't sniff the glue, my friend.

It makes you goofy...

Ah !

    Grass - Hopper - there is a saying . Yonder goes a dreamer , Yonder goes a sluffer  . But old modelers never quit , They just get better and then get better kits !

You forgot  ICM whose mantra seems to be why use 2 parts when 15 will do>(The fuselage of the 1/72 Tu Zveno comes to mind).
