Ok, so let's for a minute assume that those of us past the ripe old age of 14, have developed a basic skill set that has, from time to time, proven useful in modeling.
One of those skills is the rarely found attribute of "common sense".
That sense can be used to avoid obvious pitfalls before they become pitfalls. Those who lack such a sense or choose to ignore it for whatever reason, can do things to ruin their build, and/or make the build a horrible experience.
So, with that in mind, let's look at a picture:
The picture itself is self explanatory to all but the most brain dead among us, so most of us would choose to make our build enjoyable, and quickly, as in it takes about 15 seconds to do, trim away the unfortunately placed ejector pin marks.
Failure to do so will make for a massive seam that's nigh unto impossible to fix to any degree of satisfaction.
Some, (not LSPers) would say this makes the kit "unbuildable", but in reality, it's 10-15 second fix..
My pet peeves are not these marks. My pet peeves revolve around PE seat belts. I truly detest them.
