By naked are you referring to the colour?
If so the colours look fine, remember that in the real a/c photo, the underside is shadowed, while the model photo is top lit.
Mine is also missing the underside rego/Airline logo, first time I checked the underside of the model to be honest.
Guess NG forgot this detail.

I guess if I was receiving free models and samples from a manufacturer, I'd be saying they were the best too!! Richard, we can all see right thru your skewed reviews and obvious bias towards the bottomfeeders, and you've lost your credibility long ago!!

Where's your sense of humour Andrew. As for my credibility my work speaks for itself so chill out. You are grumpy at the moment.

Honestly if I were to read his reviews with none of the side commentary from this forum I’d be tempted to think he had an equal predilection for Aeroclassics based on his complimentary reviews of many of your moulds.

I do love Aeroclassics, what can I say. They cost me a fortune and are a major weakness of mine. Ac still produces the most interesting range of 400 scale airliners

Andrew was not grumpy but when a collector, who is also a friend of mine and a psychiatrist by profession saw this post and many of Andrew Klein’s other posts, he was adamant that Andrew Klein suffers from Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) just like his role model Donald Trump does.

I disagreed and I was furious with my friend for making such a remark. Andrew Klein is extremely polite, he never argues with anyone and he frequently praises other manufacturers (just see his signature as proof). Andrew Klein always admits his mistakes, and the language and tone he uses in his communication is that of a well polished person who has had a great upbringing.

Since that accusation, I have cut off my friendship with that collector.

That is not good. I thought Andrew Klein was not serious when he accused Richard Stretton of being biased and prone to being bribed through free models, but now that Andrew has confirmed that he meant what he said about Richard Stretton’s reviews, I am doubting Richard’s reviews.

Oh wait …… I have just seen some very favourable AeroClassics reviews by Richard, and I am seriously doubting them.

I now really envy Richard for having a huge AeroClassics collection which I assume he received for free from Andrew Klein in return for favourable reviews.

Richard, this is not fair. Your positive reviews of AeroClassics get you free models and here we all are paying huge bucks for these models.

But according to Andrew Klein, you only say nice things about anyone if you get a free model.

Going by your favourable comments above and from Andrew’s allegations, you must have received a truck load of AeroClassics models from Andrew.

Narcissists don’t have a sense of humour.

By the way, these are my collector friend’s (the psychiatrist) words and not mine. I think Andrew’s humour is amazing. I can’t stop laughing at some of Andrew’s funny posts.
