Surely the designs have to be quirky to appeal to a niche market, so at least they get some sales! One that springs to mind is the Nova - what a great idea!
Identifying the niche can be hard though. Bertini had a nice looking offering that appeared to be well put together. It was also well supported by the kit media. Looks like they struggled to get past a dozen or so units sold though, even at a price that (based on Tribute changes) was 1,000 too low. I think the Tribute and later DNA approach to models differentiates enough why you would spend over 10k on top of the donor for what is still a Z3.
