I often see the above kit mentioned on groups, but it's always wood, laser cut looking at the black edged bits of ply, yet the one Amati Riva kit I've seen and was paid to build for display was the biggest, nastiest piece of resin I've ever seen! Filled at the factory with what appeared to be Polyfilla, mis-shapen and generally foul. I had to spend hours putting that right before I veneered it in Swiss pear to look like mahogany in scale.
I'm wondering when they changed from the ugly lump to laser cut wood. Anybody know for sure?
The photo-etch was crap too! had a finish more like galvanising that bright nickel plate!
