It looks to me like a very accurate and convincing reproduction ...
of Detroit build quality of the period. Slung together late on a Friday afternoon.

Absolutely dreadful. You would think that someone would at least make sure that a specimen that was going to be photographed for publicity purposes was put together really carefully.

Of course, maybe Kess are just being honest (WYSIWYG).

With nicer colours, better woodgrain effect and proper assembly it could have been an attractive model. Shame.
