I can relate. I have 3 AUTOart models; all of them came with a clearly visible flaw.

918 Weissach: Crooked rear fin. Also, I managed to put a pretty unsightly smudge on one of the doors, thanks to my own negligence. :doh: :shame: :wall: :oops: :? :cry:
Veyron World Record Edition: Slightly crooked right rear wheel.
Aventador SV: Engine cover not flush with the roof.

I have to remind myself they're just models.

Imperfections used to bother me a bit too, but if I let it get to me then I wouldn't have many cars because almost all of them have something wrong. I'm struggling to think of a single flawlessness car in my collection. :lol:

Thanks for sharing. This for me works out almost like an anonymous perfectionism addict group.

Yes, 100% true in all respects. One must learn to get over it. Not yet sure how, but I believe this is something that comes with time and experience, right?

The older I get the less I worry about scratches on my car and dents in my hardwood floors. Hopefully this happens with modelcars too.

Go out more often.
Get a life.
Meet more people.
Find a favorite liquor.
Have more sex.
Read a book.

Models should be a way to release stress, not create it.

The reason I got into models was to alleviate stress at work :lol: . But yeah, the list actually works most of the time.
