A good example...Pan Am. The billboard paint scheme stayed constant in it lifetime as far as I know, however there is a dramatic difference in the color between Aeroclassics and Gemini. So much so, they stand out as different on a shelf next to each other. That is something a layman would notice. Is that nitpicking? I don’t think so.
Also, certain manufacturers are so unable to take negative criticism it ruins the constructive criticism thing. And honestly impacts buying habits. If your response to anything is “but you don’t know anything” , might as well just wait for waffle to post in the periodic “has anyone ever been verbally assaulted by a model airplane dealer thread.”
Yes the original paint would be the same, but fades quickly, so at an airport you would see Pan Am billboards in different shades of blue - or any airline for that matter. So your display is more realistic of the real world....?
