FERRARI vs MODEL SLIPWAY/METCALF MOULDINGS KITS
« on: December 29, 2013, 06:40:44 PM »

Now guys,

please tell me what the difference is, between a brand new Ferrari California Spider at 200,000.00p plus, and a Model Slipway or Metcalf Mouldings kit at 300.00

well, on the model boat kits from Model Slipway and Metcalf mouldings..........

They take the Flashings off the white metal mouldings before they go out to the PURCHASING PUBLIC.

It seems that Ferrari, at 200K plus, CAN'T BE BOTHERED............ >>:-( >>:-( >>:-( >>:-( >>:-(

Just have a look at the flashing left on the join of the "I" at the top joining line to the lettering.

Flashing never cleaned off before it went to the chromium plating guys.  %% %% %% %%

and multiple mould join lines on all the lettering, especially the last "R" {:-{ {:-{ {:-{ {:-{

Well anyone who pays 200k for any car clearly has more money than sense but in this case its more a case of money and NO sense.

Ixion.......I HAVE BETTER THINGS TO DO WITH MY TIME,  than try passing off a bit of dried polish for flashing on a badly moulded sign...... <*< <*< <*< <*< <*< <*<

wouldn't even have bothered photographing the b***** thing if it had have been........but there are always the doubters in every walk of life........WE JUST HAVE TO PUT UP WITH THEM!!!!! {:-{ {:-{ {:-{ {:-{ {:-{ {:-{ {:-{

And it's even more insulting when people doubt my integrity AND  eyesight for nothing more than to start an argumentative discussion....... >>:-( >>:-( >>:-( >>:-(

I always wondered why they left the bar along the top joining the letters together, looks kind of unfinished to me, individual letters would be nicer I think?

Quality seems to be dropping at the factory if they passed that component for fitting, Doesn't look good with casting flash on it!

Most automotive name/brand plates/plaques these days are nickel plated over plastic........ O0

Clearly the example here has probably been used since Enzo was a boy...... {-) ......Derek

Shock, horror, the sky is now falling in, surely not on a Fffferrari, next you will be telling me it was made in China.
 
Oh my goodness, where will it all end.

I believe the Holden lion head badges fitted to both the Cruise & the Commodore motor vehicles are nickel plated plastic & produced in Korea........ O0 ....Derek

If you want to see how well Ferrari's are made watch the megastructures documentary.  Its a very good watch indeed but 45 minute long

A decent Caterham would run rings around it anyway. And I prefer the older Ferraris. 250 GTO anyone?
