My photographs Graeme. I can only work what I am presnted with.
I would say that because the photos are larger than life, and apparent lack of build quality is magnified accordingly. I'm aware that some of the applied chrome work looks as though it could have been done better, but that wasn't apparent until I looked at the photos. Having looked at the models again, whilst there are minor imperfections at 1/43rd scale, I don't think they the comments made are totally justified, although I must admit, there is room for some improvement. Its the same old story; don't be too critical until the model has been viewed first hand. I consider the main problem is the rear window surrounds which appear to be a tad too small.
