Default New Guns in movies Book

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...-guns/comments



Though she did original 'artwork' on a lot of the guns, she makes some seriously strange errors on how the guns should look. Though I think I recognize some of the guns as the exact model, lighting and look of pics I shot for IMFDB. No issue there, just something I noticed.

And I can't help but think that she got most of the info from IMFDB rather than do the research herself. I wonder if she did use us as reference and give us credit?

There is a tie-in with the IMFDB Facebook page.

I doubt she just ripped the research straight from IMFDB, mainly because there are quite a few mistakes that we have not made on our pages, either having the picture be of slightly the wrong model of gun, or calling the gun the wrong thing. Strangely though there are some IDs which are correct that I wouldn't necessarily expect, like the Cobra Big Bore Derringer from Django Unchained which I would normally expect people to just list as a Remington 1866. It also looks like the artist doesn't really understand what the different parts of guns are, with the receivers on the AR-15 looking particularly odd like she doesn't understand which parts go in or out. There are definitely some images on their that are copied from yours though MPM2008, such as the screen used HK45 from the Book of Eli being a particularly obvious example.

She clearly has not read the IMFDB page for "Firefly" very closely, or else she'd know that Vera was originally built for the movie "Showtime".

Sorry to be the party pooper, but I have long been of the opinion that Wikis like IMFDB will obviate the market for books like this. I'm impressed she has raised so much money, though. The last time I worked on a Kickstarter-funded project, we fell $1,000 short of our goal and wound up paying out-of-pocket.

She misidentifies the Bushmaster Carbine with a Cobray 37mm launcher with a pic of an M4 with an M203 launcher. But the colostomy bag at the butt end of the Carbine is a nice touch........

So that's what that is. Okay.

I noticed that too - she said she is giving us a credit in the book. She's first and foremost an artist and I think whoever was helping her with the research sloppily repackaged imfdb...
