I have been grabbing up some 1/43rd scale 'Starter of France'/'Provence Moulage' kits lately. Yeah they aren't the most accurate nor detailed kits, but they make me happy. Now this topic might just spark a lively debate (I hope so anyway) between the "I'm just happy to have it" crowd, and the rivet counters.
Before going any further I would like to point out that I don't want to see either side of this debate villified so...keep it civil.
It is fairly well known by now, that there are several of us inside my head. Some of us want to see a most accurate, down to the last bolt, over-the-top too cool kit! Then...there's the other half of us (and i'm referring to the "us" inside my own head) that just doesn't care. Just happy to see something CLOSE...something that when you look at it you can see what's supposed to be.
That's the part of me in between. The part of me that says..."Okay, it's only about 88.88% accurate...and I can live with that. I'm good.
I guess what i'm asking here is, how bad does a kit have to be before you say "Great day in the morning!"* and put it back on the shelf, never to see the light of day again? Photographic examples are appreciated, and please consider scale in your replies.
* (I never did understand that expression by the way!)
