That chest square's a real issue. I can't imagine why it would be flaking, chipping and cracking so easily and soon. It's a no-stress area, so I can only guess that moisture or moulding oil/grease was present in the recessed area when the paint was applied. Or some sort of crazy chemical reaction between the paint and plastic, but that seems a little far-fetched. It's not even an easy fix with a sticker, either. Whatever is causing that paint to have these issues, is probably going to cause it as long as it's (the paint or the problem causer beneath it) there. I'm really shocked to see an issue like this with a DX9 product. Granted my personal experience with them is entirely with their legends line, but I've never heard of their MPs having problems like this.
