I'll be banned from this forum in few minutes so you guys either have to go to SPC forums to see this model or check out it in estonian forum if you want to see this model built(you wont understand anything but its the best I can give you right now): http://plastikmudel....opic.php?t=1293
It's part of the hobby only because of lousy quality control by the manufacturers. And that was the original question: whether flash was a measure of quality (or lack of quality). And the answer is yes, flash is a reflection on a kit's quality (or lack of).
Dont worry I was joking anyway. But I myself still dont see any issue on the flash/moldlines. I bet manufactures have thought about it and it might not be as simple as we think to prevent the flash when producing a kit. Remember they have to produce it in large numbers and machines get worn out in time. Plus if you want to stay in business you cant invest in ultra-ultra-space-fiction-quality technology if you dont have huge profits.
###### you guys over there get some rough treatment.
Here in Estonia and actually most of the Europe we have nothing to worry about, maybe some thunderstorms that rip couple of trees out from ground and nothing more. And maybe little bit this or that.
But we dont have anything that puts lots of people and their properties in such a danger. I feel sorry for you guys and I hope things will be alright. Its always sad to see things like tornadoes and other stuff on news. You americans have big and powerful country but there is nothing to do for stopping mother nature.
