Well yea, but... If it offends you, you might try to reform that
area or maybe just invest in a CNC rig and do it right. <g>
Seriously, you are correct but it's probably a case of diminishing
returns. Casting 2 sided in resin must be tough and I wonder how thick
it is (I've got to pull out my Sunshine MILW rib side and check).
Injection molded would be preferred (?) but then I wonder what we'd
get for a method to make them work - Athearn "claws" maybe?
