None of mine has false rivets.... 

I didn’t say they were. But who would want a boat only held together in a few places when they could have a boat where all the joins are welded seams!

Well I happen to have both, as it happens...

And guess which one gets more attention from towpath pedestrians!

Oh, no doubt the one that is only held together in a few places. Everyone likes a good sinking!

What is a "false copy" ?

Is this

no60163-tornado-class-a1-peppercorn-paci

 

a "false copy" of this....

london-north-eastern-railway-class-a1-46

 

Provided you don't claim a modern replica of something to be one of the originals, what's the issue?

No, it is a 1to1 scale model.

I believe that one is often referred to as the 'supermodel' in preservation circles
