Paint Quality of MDC/Roundhouse kits

Post by Xplorer2000 »

I've recently been adding a number of MDC/Roundhouse Boxcar kits to my collection, and I've noticed after I got them back home that some of the more recent offerings, in the brighter colored boxes, have had someREALLY shoddy paintwork on them , to the point where some of the end corrugations on cars have a lot of bare plastic spots showing through. One even looked like it might have been done with a spray can. I've e-mailed Roundhouse about it already,for all the good it'll do, but has anyone else noticed any problems with their stuff lately?? Its too bad, 'cause they're nice little kits.
