Don’t we all. Some of it is returning to the UK, Humbrol for instance. It will happen but will take time. Prices will rise but so be it.

I agree some of the model manufacturing is slowly returning, which is great but like WTD has mentioned prices will probably go up.

The point is, unfortunately, that Made-in-China is invariably cheaper than Made-in-UK. It's the same story here in Germany. My toolkit is only about 20% made in Germany (or EU). If everything were made in Germany, I'd not have been able to afford a lot of it (or I'd've needed to buy it on credit or whatever, and go without something else). Having said that, the Jouef 241P, at 260 quid, is also made in China, so it does depend to some degree on the makers' (or, rather, brand owners') hunger for profit.
