How much?

Watching daytime TV you see all sorts of advertisements. There are life insurance plans, double glazing, furniture, Bath seats for the elderly.

The latest one is model building kits. Buy now, first issue is £1.99, then £8.99 per issue ….. But the models of famous ships or complex robots or classic cars are made up of sometimes 120 parts. So that’s 120 issues of the magazine that comes with it. If you do the maths that’s around 4 years of magazines and parts and over £1071 in costs!

I can imagine someone who loves model boats or trains might start doing one of these. But will they continue making it? Can they afford it? I do think it’s a bit of a rip off…..
