I don't think you are being "picky", Tony.    Of course it should have been done right but one seldom sees an American "restoration" that pays much attention to getting the detail correct.   

At least it hasn't been hot rodded; if it had been then it would probably fetch far more!   Big Grin

In my experience cars like this will be bought because the buyer simply wants one - the cost won’t necessarily be a factor.

The car will then be completely stripped and rebuilt to the new owners taste/wishes.

My mother has located the models she made of the Swallow and the RK in the 1970s for a BA7C model making competition.

The photos are slightly fuzzy so she is going to try again tomorrow - the tail is a real egg!
