Wondering if anyone can add some insight to the model, I have the 1/18 but Iíve always had an eye on the 1/12, I thought I recalled somewhere that there were some ďagingĒ issues with it, maybe the white yellowing?

I had one, awful model!
Just like a plastic kit but with a painted metal body!
The paint chips off easy and yeloows badly and the parts are very simply painted.

On a positive note though they are very cheap!

I have one and also had another one before which i sold.Both the paint was good on my models but it is lacking in detail so i detailed up the one i have now old one page 10 in my thread if you want to see the original version and that had silver pen touch ups on the bolts.The bolts are there just not painted so it can look much better if you go over it with a silver sharpie. :twocents: :occasion14:
