I would agree that's the exact reason the vast majority of people aren't bothered by a slightly overscale engine or a roof which appears to have a bit too much crown. Without getting into a sociological analysis, going the more conservative route of toleration and acceptance is almost always end in a positive outcome for the majority, and make no mistake, the model companies aim to please the majority with each run of 50,000 kits they produce.
Not taking any sides here, I would have to go back and read 11 pages to figure out what really is being said, but I think one thing, well two things that are being forgotten is this.
One, model kits are made for the masses, not for the die hard, rivet counters if you will(I do not mean rivet counter in a bad way) the guys that know vehicles inside and out, or the guys that want perfection in their model kits , (not saying anything is wrong with that).
Two, the members here dont make up a even half of the model company's customers , so no one here can speak for all the people out there that are buying model kits that dont spend time on model forums and if they care about if the model kits are perfect in every way
So if the masses that are buying the kits dont care if the subjects are 100% perfect, then I dont think the model company's will either, and a handful of guys on a model forum are not going to change anything.
If I am wrong, well then I am wrong.
Just pointing this out, you can bash me now if you must
