I think it is amazing that we have to become adult before we learn
we are each different folks with differing likes and expectations. But this discussion started wanting some realism and scale look in color and I agree with that. Just as shape looks different from our 1:1 eyes to a 1:43 scale model so too does the impact of the color. Especially metallic and pearl. But the solid primaries like red, green, blue and yellow can certainly look too strong if not toned down to scale. Unfortunately our little cottage model makers may be unaware of this. So all we can do is refrain from becoming their customer. But that's so hard when we are all greedy collectors and believe the old joke that the one with the most toys wins. Really? Ya think? Seriously, we should not buy what we don't admire. And we should be honest to ourselves, some of these miss the mark. Don't they?
