I have seen many bakelite models with the fancy finish.  This listing says they are probably fake.  Would that apply to this model I've attached, too?  It would have been made from the same or very similar mold to get this right.

In this case "fake" is referring to a painted finish. Both Bakelite but rarely plastics were painted (sprayed) by Manufacturers. Is this model really plastic and not Bakelite or Catalin? A hot pin in rear etc. will give a fishy smell for Bakelite.

If the appearance is part of the moulding, then it's just a variation not known to the Model Page creators. My speciality is 1950s UK battery valve sets and very often there are rarer production runs with different colour-way of Leatherette style materials.

If yours is owner painted, it's very clever. It looks like special moulded effect.

Faked Bakelite cases (e.g. round Ekco) by an enthusiast are often MDF. Quite obvious from the inside as a reproduction.
