I appreciate Dave coming on here and explaining the inner workings of a model company. I don't believe anyone purposely puts out a flawed product. The global economy being the way it is today, even with state of the art communications over thousands of miles, errors creep in and judgments are made. The fact that Moebius is not as big as Revell or Round2 makes them more nimble and better able to catch and fix flaws before they are committed to steel. I am totally blown away by the quality of product coming these days from all the companies. The Hudsons and Chryslers are state of the art. Revell has always had high parts counts and with the newer tools well fitting kits. I currently have the AMT '60 Ford Starliner on the bench and am blown away by the engraving on the engine and the detailed separate frame.
It's nice to be nostalgic over Johan kits or the Craftsman series, but I believe now is the new "golden age" of the hobby, and boards like this one allow us a voice like never before. We should call them out when we see things that are "grossly inaccurate", but we should also vote with our dollars when they get it right. Capitalism is a terrible system, but better than any other one we've tried so far!
My 2c spent.
