The issue I think lies in the younger generations not understanding what a kit or scratchbuilt is. I have also seen scratchbuilt in a title where a repaint was done. A nice repaint, but no scratchbuilding had taken place..
The problem is that Ebay only give you a couple of choices... So if you've done a full repaint and detail job on an RTR then strictly it should be S/H RTR but that would do it a dis-service! Also how far is it before a kit-bash becomes a scratchbuild? Even we modellers struggle on that one!
They could do with having several more categories, but then we'd get people who don't know anything about models not knowing what category something should be listed in...
The current set-up is the best of a bad job I think!
