High praise from all, Iím a little overcome
Especially when compared to Wagner and claimed to be better! Eek I wouldnít go that far but I can see what you mean. The illustrations in ďCut & ThrustĒ are a lot more 2 dimensional but for the purpose they do the job excellently. I know everybody uses photos these days but I think itís the cheap, easy and inadequate solution. They are rarely of an adequate size for good identification/clarity either.
Well not sure exactly were I will go with this but Iíll continue to illustrate my own items and see how that turns out. I must also remember to put some sort of scale on the final versions.
Cheers all for the vote of confidence.
