Some people aren't as interested in researching and obsessing over specific snapshots in time as others are. Similarly, some don't care if a model is 100% accurate, they just want it to look 'pretty'. If a super detail set comes with multi era options, maybe they feel ripped off if they don't use it all?
Lots of reason. In the end, most of us build for ourselves.
A few days ago I watched a YOUTUBE video of a guy using a hyperdetailing set for the 1:200 Missouri. Having been on three of the Iowas, a number of the details did not look right. I checked my photos and saw a lot of discrepancies.
Jim Slade sent me some of his measured drawings that clearly showed the discrepancies. When I pointed them out to Jim, he sent excerpts of blueprints showing that they clearly were discrepancies.
This makes me wonder, what is the point of hyperdetailing in error? I'd think that you'd be better off with no details than wrong details.
