Default HM200 Delta A310 widget

Grrrrr. Hobby Master refuses to enhance their :200-scale models with extras like antennas and beacon lights. Hard to tell on a rendering if the wing seam will be wide enough to slide a popsicle stick through...a la the Pan Am A310.

Just repeating what I said in the HM F27 thread- "there are more seams in these things than a bridal dress!" What the hell is it with Hobby Nasty. Can't they get their tooling into the 21st century like the other manufacturers? How do they expect us to part with good money to buy something that is not much better quality than a kids toy?

As much as I would love a 1:200 Delta or FedEx A310, no HM mould for me either.

Well their reputation as lightweights and/or hacks is growing. I'll continue to pass on their efforts.

My sincere condolences to those who collect Delta. I know what that is like.
