I totally agree. The inside of the Railcar is a horrible, lazy, way out dated way of manufacturing a model! There is no way it needs a huge motor for what is a single car unit. A flat printed floor and separately fitted printed seats would have been a 'game changer'. There are very few parts in this model and a handful of separate seats could have been done at this retail price!

But hey, mine don't look too bad now :wink:
Thanks.

What you have done is changed it from what looks like a slightly updated Lima railcar standard to a class leading work of art. I'm impressed.
