Thanks for the replay.......
On the subject of reputations. I was not thinking of myself, Lord knows you can't harm my reputation, for I do not have one; well, not one worth Mencken.
I was thinking of Pavel. It seems kind of harsh to say,that the photo is a fake based on minor differences in ones observations.
May-haps .... It would be better to say ..... that the authenticity of the photo is questionable. and then list the reasons for your statement.
This way, we let the readers of our message make there own decision on the photo in question.
One of the problems I have noticed, concerning building models now days is that...... everyone wants to see a photograph.
In the old days..... if you could find reference in a reputable book it was considered ok. There are only so many photos that will ever be available. This is a limitation
that ties our hands behind our backs.
While I have a good B**** going, I will include the nit-picking over minor details on peoples models.
This is suppose to be a fun hobby. I soon found out, when I started building for competition. There is not much fun, there anymore. So I quit. And ques what I found ? the fun was still there. It just was not ware I was looking
Have a good day,
