i read up on alfred himself so see if i can find a clue.So Dave, what's the verdict ? A hippocampus or a lion ?
Appreciate your feedback Gary. But your picture is of the HMS Warrior. I am working on the HMS Alfred. I am not changing nor interpreting anything. I am simply trying to recreate what I think was on the original ship based on very sparse and blurry information. What makes you think Harold Hahn did anything different than what I am doing? If not a lion, sea horse, or hippocamp - what do you think it is? I honestly don't understand your point.Why are you changing the figure shape from what it was to what you think it should be.
Ok.. that is great Gary. I still don't understand your point? With all due respect, I think you should go back and read the first post of this thread to see what is going on here. The reason I changed the figure to a hippocamp was at the request of my client. I am also drawing it as a hound exactly the way Hahn did. It is called "Builders Choice". Are you interested in obtaining some of these parts I am fabricating? If not, I don't see where your presumption lies? I am happy to make whatever the client requests. In the blurry picture you can clearly see the "hound has a fish-like tail".... Soooooooo...I believe that it is a hound
