For the modeller, the problem with having a basic hull + add-on kits is
that you'd get a LOT of very fiddly little details that would have to be
glued on to the model. Add-on armour in particular tends to cover very
large parts of a vehicle. While it'd be easy for the SCULPTOR to create
master models in this fashion, the MANUFACTURER (and retailer, and
certainly the customer) would probably find it easier if each variant
produced with all its specific details already fitted.
