I have a bunch . . . of
one-piece body resin kits, and only the few I have from Speedwitch and
the B & O USRA mill gondolas from Westerfield have the parts of the
one-piece body fitted together well. All the others have one or more
seams (side/end or side/roof) where it looks like the master didn't
get put together very tightly, leaving space for dribbles, globs and
blobs of resin to fill the gap.
It sounds like some of the "one piece body" kits apparently use
"masters" which are nothing more than an assembled flat-kit body. (I
thought the O-P-B F&C X26c we've seen in photos here looked like a
built-up flat kit.)

Thanks for the warning!
