Response to "political correctness" and modelling.

I like esoteric discussions liek this wink.gif

I was one of the judges on the "burden of sorrow" concentration camp diorama at amps, it was a spectacular piece. It did not need to be graphic to be moving and thought provoking. Personally I would want it displayed at the Holocaust museum so others can see it.
I think its also important to remember that what we model are tools of war, and they where designed for a very specific task.

I find it very interesting how many countries (outside the us) make it illegal to display or sell swastikas. i consider this extreme, and very short sited. You could be in trouble for showing a diorama with a nazi flag in it in the country of germany...

I also think its "stupid" to ban things based on subject from IPMS. we used to joke that they would cover up figures with a boob showing, but had no problem with nude nose art! wink.gif

I am interested to hear form anyone who has had a piece bared from a show, or if they have been confronted because of a modeling piece.
