The inaccuracies can be somewhat forgiven if we take them at their word that their target customers are collectors and non-modellers.

On the other hand I recently saw the Master Replica snowspeeder at a hobby shop and it is obvious they made the effort to be accurate in profile, detailing and markings. This model is also targeted at collectors and retails for the same or even less. Maybe they can build us an Eagle!

The most anoying thing with 005 is the failure to properly mask the black anti-glare panels; with overspray bleeding onto the nose sides. How can you trust that the model you recieve in the mail won't have as bad or worse care taken in painting than this "show model".
