I have a Scalemates admission to make here...perhaps I should PM Tim so he will be sure to see it!
Seriously, here is what happened...that little model was moved again and again for testing of the backgrounds, eventually fell on the floor and was slightly damaged...then it had little pieces of carpet fuzz all over it....
long story short....i had touched up the model to get rid of some spots on the left side, but never got a decent photo with that fix...so i touched up an earlier series of photos and got rid of the spots.
my only defense is that i am convinced this little guy looked like this at SOME point...maybe just before the big crash on the floor.
there...i feel better...honesty can be refreshing to the soul.
(i'm going to leave that crooked tail wheel there (which disappeared entirely at some point in this back and forth process) as a testament to honesty.)
