I had an air bubble in the right windscreen of my MP-10. It bothered me to the point where I just had to drive all the way to the hobby store again to get it replaced.
The second one had a stroke of black paint on the top of the right chest piece. I decided to wipe it off with Gundam marker thinner, seeing as the red underneath was red-colored plastic instead of paint. While the black paint was erased, the red plastic took on a slightly shiny look as opposed to it's original matte or semi gloss finish. I'll get around to retouching it with a layer of semi-gloss clear spray one of these days.
Very poor QC, especially for such an expensive product.
BTW, I just noticed that MP-10 is made in Vietnam. If the QC there isn't any worse than in China, it certainly hasn't gotten much better.
