These are great models no doubt. However I have a question, why do they look like models ?

I find that the windows and surround is often a giveaway and is there something about the way the light reflects back off the surfaces. ?

No way a criticism of the product, but as with such things as model rail layouts, what is it that says "this is a scale downed model"

Thanks for posting the update.

Agreed, I'm very glad it isn't of something I own otherwise temptation (and ruin) would be strong Smile
