Original vs recast cruver spotter models?

One sure sign can be found on the underside of many of the reproductions. A capital letter "R" inside a diamond. Also, a majority of the originals will have a slight warp to the wings, or tail plane, which does not happen to the more stable reproductions.

Here's mine. I'm not exactly sure what I am going to do with it at the moment, but I would like to know if it is original or repro.

And the underside. No "R" marking at all. Detail appears more crisp than some recasts I have seen, and it also lacks the bubbles and casting issues I have seen in some recasts as well.

I'm no expert, but it looks like an original to me. The smaller models, with shorter wingspan, are much less likely to warp.
