The reason I say this is because of Round 2 I have been building more model kits recently than I have in some time. A while back I made mention that the Enterprise was now being molded in blue and someone said whats the difference what color its molded in if your going to paint it over. The difference is first off I like the Blue Color and I don't want to have to paint over the model if I don't want too. It looks great just built from the tin with a little painting and decals applied and to me thats fun. Some models like Mr Spock need to be painted but that shouldn't be with every model. I don't need to build a Museum Quality model every time. That's o.k. from time to time but I like putting some kits together as I did when I was a kid with a careful build job some minimal painting and applying some decals and it looks great.Now to me thats fun.
