In talking with Lee at length he also said the same thing in regards to shrinkage..."less than the thickness of human hair"....I kinda didn't follow/ understand that whole theory??
Do you think way back when Lee's current Plug was made that "shrinkage" was even a concern for the makers of that mold?
And if not, then there would be a slight possibillty of what is known to occur in the prop community as some level of shrinkage, no?
I mean I know there are better products out now that can prevent any type of Shrinkage, but back then?? did they really consider all that?
I don't think its to ridiculas or to far fetched to make the assumption on the products they used back then that "MIGHT" cause some type of Shrinkage? It's Kinda a valid question when speaking in terms of exact accuracy....
Again I think Unless you've seen the real deal up close, I think most people would be surprised on how big it really was in person....
I say we go to London and do an "Oceans 11" and take the thing!!
