    I too like this site. However, one issue has not been addressed:

    The modelers should be named!

    Credit for photos would be a good idea too. These people worked hard to create the models and images which form the basis of your website. Your website could not exist without them. Giving credit for their efforts is the very least you could do.....

    The modellers are named on each detail page when you open a piece for review Mike. The print is perhaps easy to miss but it is there under the thumbnails. I expect finding credit for photos when the pix are likely harvested from multiple existing sources would be very difficult if not impossible in most cases. Most of the shots appear to have been reposted after being found elsewhere on the net on sites like PF. In most cases the photographer and modeller are likely the same person.

    You are right but I think that you have not see the "virtual museum" with attention!!....For any photos (one to one!!!) there are the name of the sculptor, the name of the painter and if is it possible the name of the collector or the name of the productor....I hope that in the future you will see many masterpices with more attention.
    It's the truth!!...Vithout this master it woluld be "nothing"....Excuse me for my bad english...

    Hi!

    One more question: do you intend to do some selection of works that you will receive?
    My question is because I see a museum aa a worship place, you do not think that only the best and only these should be present?
    Thanks in advance.

    Cheers,
    Pedro.

    ...The project is to collect the historical miniatures from the born to today or tomorrow!...The problem is that there are very much masterpices in the word but only to start by the 2006-2007 there are good photos (before there aren't digital camers)....I hope that not only the recent works, but also the oldest works can will be on the "virtual museum"....I would like to think that will arrive many photos from anywhere....not only from Master:)....
    Excuse my bad english...
