Cheers PattyD,

I know some folks might frown, but its not like I wrecked a really good one with original German paint finish. Picture is a bit weird actually as on the ground the colours are really good but in the pic the green and brown come out a bit off.

May be reflective values on the paint when subject to flash as we cant get lead based paints anymore. Won't do anything about the sling and just leave as is on that score.

Fills a hole in the collection.

Good attitude. Well done Tim. There was no reason to leave in former condition. That was nasty. You might be right about colours and using flash. Try to make some outdoor pictures in some shady place, without flash.
