"No doubt "they" (those "real" lady modellers, so PC Eureka) are busy trying to apply the bits of highly infinite detail to them so that people have something to complain about when they eventually arrive with bits already fallen off in the box.....
Ron's wording is:"The assembly line will usually consist of a a dozen or so young women who have the dexterity to handle the often delicate tasks involved in the assembly process. Fundamentally, all models are at their most basic level, a kit. What most of us modellers are now doing is contracting out the assembly of these kits to the young women in the picture above. These days, most of us in the hobby no longer have the skills, the inclination or above all the time to do this work ourselves and so we happily pay to have someone else do it for us."
So you have reworded it incorrectly CPoint, and there's nothing un-PC about what he has said, it's a statement of fact. Look at the photo.
That's boring though, what's more interesting is the complete absence of any concern on what is being said in the comments since, and that Ron's comment is a correct but sadly damning condemnation of the state of Australian model rail building today. The most we can do is wave our non-building fingers at these workers (and likely very hard workers) and blame them for a few bits that fall off.
I don't disagree with what you say, & while the work is monotonous it is still a job & in China many others would be pleased to have a similar job as in the end its better than not having one & in China there are a lot of people who do not have one, & the streets are full of young people who have graduated from their universities who also cannot get jobs in their chosen field either.
Its not much different here in Australia as one only has to watch our polititians who go around the various factories here at election time, or after a budget to promote what they are doing for workers, how many notice the lines of sewing machine workers, & those in the food industry assembly lines also.
That aside, I think the big bug bear in all of the problems with the box of bits is not really the direct fault of the kit builders in China but more the aspect that none of the items are actually glued in place at assembly, if this was a requirement then things may well be different.
I do not have a worry about building kits or even scratch building models & scenery items, but I also think that when I buy something factory assembled, then it should come to me in the box assembled. Nothing more - nothing less, except maybe it can stay in place.
