Maybe so, but they have a nice yellowish hue to them. 

Cheers,

doesn't look all that terrible. I've definitely built worse!

        I have 3, ostensibly from various companies. Moulding is similar to Frog, 
with extra flash in 2 of the boxings. Greatest problem IMO is the starved 
cow ribs. Slowly sanding them away, over the years. I've a big box where I 
keep them, along with similarly afflicted, like Some Airfix kits, and the 
Frog Vimy. Occasionally I have at them, for the good of my soul. 

        The plastic is very hard, so sanding is tedious. The other details are 
clunky in places, but it's not a bad representation overal. IMHO, YMMV blah 
blah etc. Decals are rubbish.
