I recently got back into this. I was doing mainly mil figs back 2010-11 ish. I remember back then one of the things that bugged me was the lack of basic parts and materials. I've done many other indoor hobbies, but I've never run into one like this. I understand that major items need to be limited. You run into the same thing with most hobbies now. You won't be able to buy a train loco, plane model, or RC model, forever. You have a limited amount of time. That's fine. But the part that's ridiculous with 1/6 is that, you have to depend on the parting out of sets, for virtually everything. To the point where I can't even find SS type neck pins. I mean, how is that not just a basic part made available? Yes, I know some guys 3d print them... For $8. More power to them if they can get that, but I'm not paying $8 for a little piece of plastic. Why can't companies like SS, DAM and others, just make some basic parts? I don't get why that's so hard. I feel like it cripples the whole hobby and really turns people off, who otherwise might pick up the hobby. Imagine if you spent $200 on an RC model... broke one little part, then it's like... 'Oh no, sorry... You have to now find somebody who has parted out that whole model, and get lucky enough to buy that one part off them when they happen to have it for a week or so, before it gets sold to some other desperate person who needs it. It's just stupid.
