Panel line detail is recessed, without a doubt a lot of attention has gone into accuracy and detail, this was obviously a labour of love to design.
I do think some of the panel lines are a little wide and soft (rounded) for this scale, but once we have some primer on them, I believe they’ll be just fine. As you can see from these sprue shots, there is absolutely no flash at all….. :)
The recessed detail is complemented with raised detail where appropriate for air intakes, vents and protruding panels. Once again these are finely moulded, although the purest among us may wish to open up the vents with a scalpel.
The attention to detail continues across the smaller parts, just look at the main wheels and the brake drum detail on the inside.
Another example is the engine exhaust face, even when it will be deep inside and hard to see.
