I like to see the bare model right next to a painted one, but I need to see both.

The painted model tends to show detail better and gives me some inspiration, but it's not necessarily how I will paint it, so I need to see it raw as well.

POLL DESCRIPTION

Poi000 asks:

When releasing new models, what should manufacturers show us?

It's Mongoose's work with ADB on Call to Arms: Star Fleet which made me think about this. Mongoose rarely show anything before they have a painted model. ADB have consulted with fans in detail on every model in the range before signing them off.

If I can only see one, it has to be either the green/3D prototype or the bare model. It's the only way I can see the detail as sculpted, rather than anything added by a no-doubt-talented painter.
