Draconian Fighter - lack of detail

I've always thought this was a pretty accurate looking kit - until i checked with this photo just before sploshing various browns around as you can see in the second pic.
Blimey, looks pretty bare doesn't it? There's not even a hint at so much of this lovely intricate detail Ken and co put on. And, oddly, what are surfaces with holes drilled in them on the original are duplicated as raised bumps.
Can see now why folk have produced a more accurate version. But, that's not for me - i got this one partly because it was a quick purchase but mainly as i wanted to rebuild something from my early SF model making.
