For what it’s worth, I own almost all the 1/60s from Yamato and Arcadia. I’ve had hard points break on Yamato VF-1D, TV VF-1S, 2xDYRL, and a TV VF-1A Max. It does happen on Yamato’s too and no I wasn’t being rough with them. Those parts can wear out so be careful when removing/applying missiles and be ready with some glue if it happens.
I think the biggest difference (or area to complain) about Yamato/Arcadia is the lack of printing on the aircraft. I have the PF finishes too and will order more, but there is a difference in the “regular” finish in the amount of detail paint in Arcadia and Yamato. I’m sure it was a cost cutting measure for Arcadia and there were probably lots of arguable reasons why they did this as a business but it still stings.
