Privateer plastics

Is it just me or is privateer plastics absolutely terrible. I do prefer plastic models to paint and carry around, but it just seems like privateer's plastics are a pain in the ass to clean and assemble. I put together one slayer (a while ago), but just started assembling the menoth battle box to teach a buddy with and I want to stab a basketball in frustration. Is it just me?

It isn't just you, they are horrific. The Menoth one gave me fits also. I have yet to see a solid plastic model, but their metal ones have made me pretty happy recently.

I think it varies from kit to kit. The Menoth plastic jack kits have been near perfect for me. I just got some Bastions today and they will require some work to straighten their glaives.

Edit: Holy jesus these were a bitch to assemble. I had to cut every joint to fit it in the sockets. On one particular pose (which comprises 3 of the 5 models) there is a pretty noticeable gap I'll need to green stuff into a cloth wrapping or something.

And I understand the plastic is a resin plastic hybrid like thing? Something like that so plastic glue doesn't work.
