Yeah they did but they were more like two little dinks molded in the wing. I shaved them off.Very nice. Does this version have the fixed, rearward facing, machine guns at the rear of the engine nacelles?
It seems that it's the matter of the time. In the past, the Matchbox was notorious of the bad quality of the polystyrene. It was too soft with easy peeling or spliting into layers while cutting , sanding etc. The differen colour of the plastic I don't mention at all. The same could be found for parts of the old Revell kits.
I would in part disagree. The made in England by Lesney company kits were made from good quality polystyrene. It was when the Lesney company was bought by a company in Hong Kong in early to mid 1980s that the polystyrene quality dropped. I don't know if production moved to Hong Kong but they weren't made in England.
