    Ha ha, haven't done that mate! That is the exact microscope that I bought too mate, they are amazing, I'm still learning how to use the thing but already can see the potential they have in catching out fakes in many aspects of the hobby. Your decal pics are very good mate!

    Excellent work Andy, I liked to magnify the hairs coming out of your head and arm. I really grossed my daughter out at 400x LOL. Inkjet causes the dot matrix spots to appear on the decals and they really (the fakes) break down at high magnification. I will try to get a thread here on the subject as well especially relating to SS decals. But this is something I've used now for years and examined well over 120 SS helmets with and hundreds of others. I honestly believe the fakers cannot fake to the 200-400x level and my background in graphic design and print helps. Its helped identify a rare 4 toed Q Bigfoot decal and the Sauerland decal and weed put many fakes that were once thought to be good.

    Thanks Doug, it's a fun little tool I will use a lot I think. The most annoying thing is knowing which way you have it oriented. I took some pics of a bad SS decal I got along with that Heer. You may have studied this one already, from France. I don't have a full pic at the moment but it's a Pocher fake.

    I won't publish some of the pics I've taken.... There is some surprisingly nasty looking crap going on in the micro world of your body

    Definitely get one mate, it is a fantastic tool. It was originally Doug's early work on these that made me want one. I hope he posts the Sauerland analysis recently completed, closing the book on the controversy of those. It would make a great pinned thread. You should check out some of the threads at GHW I mentioned in post 10. Eventually I'd like us to have similar reference resources at our forum here also.
