You have no argument, you clearly bought a loco with damaged parts that you have no idea of how they got broken then claim the manufacturer is producing a poor quality item.
At the end of the day, if you feel that badly about them then you will know never to purchase 1 again but you will find you will be part of a small minority that wouldn't.
FFS i know that !! that is why i baught it already broken and with a discount as it is a known problem that will eventualy happen ( so why buy one you know will break if you look at it even slightly wrong ?? )
Can't really use them as an arguement though. They are old locos in old packaging (1 not even boxed), who knows what happened to them. You can't expect them to be rough handled!! They are models and deserve care and respect. It would be like letting your daughter play with Royal Doulton figurines.
