Default Velocity Frontier A320 (CARDINAL!)

It appears that the word "Cardinal" has been spelled incorrectly on the new release. Please tell me the error was caught,and the entire run is not like this?Could we have a little QC please? I don't think I am being picky. That is an error. "Orville the Cardianl"?????

You're not being picky. That mistake is inexcusable. It ruins what is an otherwise lovely model.

It is disappointing for me,as I have all Frontier pieces to date made in 400 scale. I have a friend handy with computers. He can likely make a decal to cover the error. I know its not the end of the world,buy it is a QC issue that should have been caught. IMO.

300 pieces? I didn't think VM could afford to run that many. Hope you don't get scammed by VM and company.

It's frontier. There is a $49 fee to receive proper spelling, and there is a $4 convenience charge for the luxury of being able to pay that fee.

Disappointing, but a 1mm letter isn't going to stop me from buying a plane nobody else will make

You do have a point. It is very small,and on display,you are not likely to see it? It's just frustrating when it could have been avoided.

Well at least it wasn't spelled as Cardi-anal. Looks like V needs a overzealous quality control manager- stat!
