I apologise for my earlier "harsh" comments.
I guess that because I started my model railway endeavours back in the early 70's, I view any of these new crop of models from the various manufacturers as purely awesome. Compared to the old Friedmont and Protype kits we had available (for which we modellers of that era were VERY grateful and happy to either make do or to add extra detail as required), these current models from Auscision, SDS, On-Track, TOR and even the much maligned offerings from Columbia etc, are just fantastic.
Given the amount of work we old blokes had to put in to just get a model with a half-decent representation of the prototype, I hope you will forgive me for thinking that we are very spoilt these days.
The proportion of my weekly wage that a Workshop 5 passenger carriage (for example) would have consumed in the early 1970's, would have been roughly comparable to what a person in a comparable job would expect to pay today for these nice carriages.....yet the buyer of today has a beautiful RTR model compared to the prospect of spending many (enjoyable) hours at the work bench, filing, gluing, detailing (often with parts we had to make from scratch), painting, lining and decalling.
So, please forgive me if I jumped from a great height when it was pointed out that a couple of windows weren't painted correctly. You have still received beautiful models and have the choice as to whether to use them as is, or show off your modelling skills and modify to what you consider to be the correct standard.
The risk we face from comments such as "poor quality control"
and "BN16 has car 'B' plates and should be car 'C'. The upside-down U for the pull release should be on a separate plate, not the ID plate (on the bottom sill) should also be on both sides not just the B side. And P,V dates missing on one side"
etc, is that the importer (Auscision in this case), could just throw their hands up in the air and say: "It's all too hard...no matter how good our product is, we can never hope to please the fastidious modellers of today, so I think we'll go and do something easier, like land a man on Mars".
Once again, please accept my apologies.
