Re: Strelets 6in Mark VII Gun

Italeri's Morris Quad is another good (bad) example

It is actually a CMP Ford Quad not a badly distorted model of a Morris Quad. Type in Google "CMP Ford Quad" and you get the reference even a walk around of a British 3rd Division's preserved one. Every modeller in Canada out of sense of national pride must have told Italeri- It is not a Morris.

The error with the Strelets guns seemed to be one of simple transposition- the 8" howitzer became the 8" gun. Probably a cut and paste error and nothing to do with language fluency. The howitzers are cut down versions(length) of the 6" guns so if the gun was 8" the howitzers would be 10" which is of course wrong. The four guns are like a little family. Upset one and you upset them all.

Retailers etc see the mistake and they are in a quandary- do I correct or not? In the end they probably think it is best to leave it as it is. The error then gets a kind of "genetic" validation as in memetics* as more sequences of info transference validate it further. The gene grows in strength.

Nothing serious but illustrates the theory of cultural transference even in our little 1/72nd scale worlds.

Thanx PDA ,can´t agree most.A gentleman answer.For me,our diferences are over.
And....your Spanish is far better than my English.
After all,all of us,must be very pleased.There are lots of Nazi sets,but all periods (or almost all) are well (or in the way)to be covered.
Do you remember WW I sets last century?Airfix and nothing else.
So it seems that my Nazis are not breaking your bussiness.
I understand that you are a little jealeous,´cause all of us want more and more,but there is cake for all,for much time and for all periods,so enjoy!
