Agree... this is a tough one. On one hand, there appears to be two diff. sources of light... the first, and most obvious, is the natural light from the horizon far off to the left. And yet, the front of that blower sure looks illuminated. A good photographer would use reflective light bounce. So, I will go with...

"REAL"

I noticed the moon discs have the same outward flare at the lip where they mount to the wheels, just like the set in my garage. That swayed my opinion!

Real, and I think it only has brakes on the rear axle (and hopefully a 'chute then too ;) )

Somehow it doesn't look real.. But it doesn't look model... This is really tough one. But I went with real, I've been wrong for many weeks, and I hope that this time I'm correct. :unsure:

Another tough one, Harry.. I went back and forth with myself on this one a few times befor I decided to say it's the real deal. By brother-in-law is a profesional photographer who has done automotive work most of his career, and I see some of the hallmarks of his tradecraft in the photo work here. I know it's not his photo, but it could well have ben taken by one of the guys he's worked with.

Real! Not only the newspaper in the blower scoop, but the mold lines on the tires tend to point toward it being a model. :D
