The quality of those castings look horrid, to say the least. I mean, look at those mould/print lines!

I don't see any.

If you can't see those print lines then you really should get your eyes checked. I'm using a Surface tablet and they are obvious to me. Resin might be twice the price but they are a lot more than twice the quality.

I've bought quite a few models from BPM and find them an excellent company to deal with. I think the photos are of 15mm casts, where the lines are more pronounced. All my models have been in 1/76 where they are less so and once on the table cannot be seen at all.
I agree, resin/cast plastic are much better but it depends what you are after. If high quality is required, go a different route. For example, I love A12 Matildas, so will use Milicast because I want the best.
But as nobody else can be bothered to produce an AMX VCi, BPM gets my money and they will look good enough when taxiing my Belgians about.

BPM is one of those brands I am contemplating buying from, but am not too sure at the moment. The painted models pics look okay (and prices are low) but the unpainted models displayed as ads here look, well, like Maha Bandula said.

Their post war stuff looks quite nice, which is why I am interested.
