Firstly this is my first post so apologies if posted in wrong place.
I have just purchased 10262: James Bond Aston Martin DB5 which I plan to build over the Christmas break. Looking at photos of the completed model, I see that there is a Yellow brick in the boot. I realise this is part of the mechanism that raises the rear screen, however my question is why is it yellow, especially as I believe elsewhere in the build the identical brick is used in black. The yellow stands out like a sore thumb. I understand that these days designers us brightly coloured bricks inside models when they are out of sight to make instructions easier to follow. I also realise that sometimes an odd coloured brick is used if it’s not available in the colour of the main model (quite often in Modular Buildings). Neither of these reasons seem to apply in this case.
Just wonder what your thoughts on this were.
