Too bad they couldn’t expand into Diecast instead of resin
While I am a fan of drivers and machinery, it’s quite hard to render the human form (and fabric driving suits) credibly without the results looking like a cheap plastic dolly. More of the same here I’m afraid. They bring the whole look of the model down.
Instead of a daft looking action figure glued into the cockpit, I wish companies would instead give us a nicely rendered 1:18 model of the driver’s helmet to display how we see fit (on the roof, sidepod, in the cockpit etc)
