I find that there is a resistance to resin models here in the UK.
It is however, diminishing. I suppose the issue could be whether resin is as long lasting as white metal, particularly with regards to all the applied fine detail; body trim, etched detail etc., which can become detached as the glue dries. Not so easy to repair as white metal. Would this affect collectability? Time will tell.
