De Havilland DH-88 Comet
« on: January 13, 2019, 10:05:01 am »
I just posted a (long overdue) update to my site on the De Havilland DH-88 Comet.

Not structly what-if but there is a what-if section in the site!

No doubt you've seen this:https://www.cometracer.co.uk/ and G-RCSR is a reproduction Comet based on the original construction drawings, being built by Ken Fern in parallel with the restoration of Black Magic at Derby

Yes, I have seen the site and follow them on Facebook. Can't wait to see all three Comets flying together!

And a fair number of them have been lifted (without credit) from this very forum.  4 are mine and at least one is NARSES2's.

Well I'll be jiggered ! Perhaps we should consider a Class Action Dave ?  ;)

Seriously it does annoy me when people's work, or even the source, goes unaccredited.

Just let me know which ones are yours and I will put the credits in.
I has a lot of material that I have no idea where it came from.
No offence meant!

None taken, Tom.  :thumbsup:

Mine are the BEA, RAF camouflaged, Schneider and Supermarine Comets. 

There's a couple of others there that I've seen here, but don't recall which threads.

According to me, the main fault is not Tom's but Microsoft's: "Save picture as" should not save only the picture, but a few pixels addition with the source. This is the need but computer people don't care of the need, alas. So, now, I do not use anymore "Save picture as" but "Print Screen" then going on a pixel management software to include the web address. This is possible but long and uneasy.

Gentlemen,

I've added your names (I hope I picked the right pictures  ;)) and where I could find them I added a link to the relevant topics on the forum.
Again apologies for not attributing your work!

I do understand Tom's dilemma. I've been gathering up photos of 1:72 models in a folder for many many years. They're really just for my own entertainment and edification, but if I ever did decide to build an online 1:72 museum site, I wouldn't have the foggiest how to attribute probably 99% of those photos. I guess I'd just post them, ask that anyone who recognizes a model contact me, and go from there.
All hail 1:72!

I think that's a perfectly acceptable way to do it.
