    Maybe it’s just my imagination, but to me, the United brass decapod looks heftier and chunkier somehow than the plastic Bachmann decapod.

    Has anyone else ever noticed anything like this?

    Are they dimensionally very different from each other?

    Which one would be more prototypical if they were different from each other?

    This does not surprise me if they are indeed different.

    The manufacturing process I assume are not the same in regards to dimension tolerance, etc..

    Just don't double head them!
