@LeonF

I do wonder if sometimes the problem is the "Fanboy Factor' that surrounds the Airfix brand 

There's no need for that. Neil says the kit is wrong, but he also says the review doesn't identify the errors correctly, causing confusion with mistaken observations. No, Airfix don't get verything right, but neither do many other manufacturers. Yet we don't see the posts of outrage when other aren't up to scratch. Please leave the childish insults in the playground.

I think FAAMANs annoyance was more with the reviewer, who didn't know the subject.

Well Tom, I don't know what Acridiculous varnish is or which varnish you're considering putting on all your models. You get best reults by applying a gloss varnish before laying down transfers and then another varnish to protect them afterwards, whether that be matt, satin or gloss.

I've been looking up images of the pump compartment, there are none like this.
