I don't know Steve...if you look how Qmx raised one of their Enterprises with $2000 (from $5000 to $7000) because materials are more expensive these days it speaks volumes to me.I think Lars have one or two things to say about that,lol. I don't know about FX or Enterprise kits...I can only speak of my experience...some of those kits such as my Y-wing are licensed too, have a limitation of 44 pieces and they come with a COA plaque.(mine is 32/44)."Koensayr manufacturing" was the company that made those kits.I paid something similar for a completed kit (but with a higher finishing level) as the MR Y-wing back in the days... But I agree with you on the fact that it is a much more ambitious and costly undertaking than a one-off kit but still way overpriced...I feel their recent exorbitant price gauging has more to do with their succes and enormous waitlists,lol.
