    Larry,
    You can see the wide seam just below the clip in the first photo as well as the wide seam along the full length of the barrel in the last photo,
    Won't be ordering any more of these the are supplied by Bera.

    I agree, and I'm not really all that bothered by the seam in the circuit board. In some ways, the fact that it has visible edges makes the board look more real to me.

    Great work as always, Les.

    I agree with Vaughn...looks like part of the board. The green and gold are a nice combo.
