Sorry Martin.
Details are scale related. What might pass as detail at 1:96 is nowhere near the detail required at 1:12. Perhaps you should have another rethink?
Personally I would go for "Quality of Workmanship" no matter what the scale. I thing "g-George" would be a front runner on that one.

You're missing the point Bryan, it wasn't an offer of discussion.  Interpret it as you want but that's the heading.
