Derek Huggett Nigel - More often than not it means 'Caution' or 'Let us increase the price'! Dragon have used the term/range 'Premium Edition' (in many different scales) for many years, and at first this meant additional etched and/or metal parts, 'extra' details, and so on. Then the 'additional parts' stopped coming, but the tag 'Premium' stayed! Some of their models are still worthy of the term, but by no means all! Put simply, don't be fooled by words alone!

Nigel Thanks, Derek. Dragon uses a bewildering array of range descriptions ('smart', 'premium', orange' etc.). The cynic in me always assumes that this is for the purpose of obfuscation rather than enlightenment.
And I'm still not sure whether they played fast-and-loose with the re-release of 6253. :/

Derek Huggett Nigel - To be fair, it is not only Dragon who play this game (love the word 'obfuscation' - very apt!), but if you can be cynical, I also find you generally avoid disappointment! (No, honestly, I am a 'glass is half-full' sort of guy, it just depends who is describing it! ). The best we can do is put some trust and faith in the scalemates database for some clarity (and honesty!).
And that 'extended description' of the re-release of 6253 does look a little worrying - when already in a hole, it can be wise to stop digging!!!
