Quote from: Stuckasaurus on September 18, 2015, 09:09:49 PMHoly wow! That's amazing! Thank you especially for posting the comparison photos at the bottom: I actually joined this forum for the express purpose of finding 1:40 scale animals for my collection. Now if only I could convince my wife to concede the shelf space to me for this thing!

Quote from: Rossano on August 25, 2016, 02:37:52 PM" Some seams are a little more obvious, i.e. those were the fluke and flipper pieces are inserted or the oval-shaped insert on the underside, "I had already noticed that often japanese models show little to null sensibility to these details, that to my eye are the worst things I can find on a model, the thing that cries out loud "THIS IS A BUILT MODEL! THIS IS MADE OF PIECES OF PLASTIC ATTACHED TOGETHER! THIS IS A FAKE!" and I find them really disturbing on ANY model, even the smallest and cheapest one.Now, am I the only one here? I find it astonishing: such a huge effort to produce it and such a huge effort to buy it, and so poor solutions in the insertion of the different peices? Not even the minimal care to paint them so to give continuity at least to the colour of it?
