Water tank is a toy, not a model.
on July 13, 2014
This is a toy, not an item for any serious modeler. (I did not realize that it was really "Plasticville", which is now owned by Bachmann. Had I known I would never have bought it. I remember Plasticville as a producer of cheap plastic structures for toy trains in the 1960's. Nothing has changed.
The tank itself has obvious, poorly glued seams on both sides. The spout and structural members underneath are loaded with flash and poorly trimmed sprues. The spout (also loaded with flash) is connected to the counterweights with stiff black thread that is simply knotted in place with the ends hanging out.
The company's return policy is for you to pay the shipping both ways. That comes to over eight dollars on a sixteen dollar item. Sometimes it's best just to admit you've been taken in and make the best of what you've got. That's what I plan to do. I have learned my lesson with Best Service Stores, never to buy from them again.
