An error is still an error, especially if it is as glaring as I have
read in the posts..

How come we can crucify Intermountain (and others) but not Sunshine for
errors like this? This is just plain "head up and locked" manufacturing.

Because such errors in a plastic kit are built/designed in, and every kit
will have them. With resin kits they are typically vagaries of the casting
process and affect only a few kits. Yes, there have certainly been poorly
designed resin kits, but in principle every resin kit ends up in the hands of
a builder who is can cope with such shortcomings. Also, it's one thing to
have 200 - 300 resin kits with errors, and quite another to put 10,000 -
20,000 defective plastic kits out there.
