Hopefully it's just angle of the CAD render, but the hull of the PT kits looks all
wrong for an 80' ELCO boat.

The OSA and the PLA Type 21 missile boats in 1/72 are interesting choices.  The display cases look nice.  The big scale stuff is, I suspect for use with "action figures"...

Ummm, no. 1/18th is a very popular 'die-cast collector' scale that has nothing to do with 'action
figures'.

Aircraft subject prebuilts and kits have been marketed before in 1/18th, 21st Century Toys had
a fairly extensive range before they imploded, Pegasus sell a V-1 and a Bell X-1 in 1/18th.

IIRC some of these 'new' Merit 1/18th listings have been announced before under different
Chinese branding but remained vapourware.

Note that on the linked page in the original post , the only MRC items are the Gallery H-34s, the other kits are Merit Productions/Merit International. Merit is not handled by MRC.
