April OGR Collectors Corner photo question

Did advanced search and did not see this topic.

Got the April issue and read Collector's Corner about the Hudson.  Curious why the model in photo1, 7, 9 was taken with the steam slide valve rod at odd angle and a crosshead guide bar completely out of the crosshead slot (excuse me if not using correct terminology).  Was this the way it came from the factory (hope chinese manufacturing hasn't deteriorated that far), or did fingers dislodge these parts picking up loco?

I took the photos, and obviously I didn't notice this when we shot them. I shoot over 100 images for each issue of the magazine, and I just don't remember. 

I don't know if we damaged it by handling or if it came out of the box this way. The locomotive is no longer here at the  OGR World Headquarters, so I can't check it.

The Hudson in question is now in for repair because a component on the the RailSounds board failed. I will also have Dave Siburn fix the valve gear. Sorry I missed this when we were shooting the pictures for the April Collector's Gallery.

The LionMaster Hudson is a great locomotive if you are running traditional sized equipment behind it, which is why I am having it fixed it to run on my layout.

The tooling for the LionMaster Hudson was made in Korea, and they did a superior job of selectively proportioning the model in a less-than-scale size.

Thanks Rich and Ed.  It doesn't distract from the informative article content, but was just curious (just that engineering detail mentality of mine).   Sometimes I can look at something and never spot something someone else sees immediately....

Would be an interesting article sometime, of how do you proportion and/or compress a model so it looks realistic and believable.  Obviously not everything can be scaled down by x% and have to allow for motor and board sizes before scaling down.
