This is an excellent model, having a very attracive weathered
paint scheme. For some reason, I took these pictures without a
glass cover over the painted decking. The technique worked fairly
well, me thinks...
These photos were taken in 2013, about the time I started having
health problems. In the months and years following, I completely
forgot the pics were in the database, and discovered them only
when I was scanning for the files used in the last update. Anyway,
these "G" pictures were taken using my old Nikon D7100,
which I traded to partially pay for a new D600 and larger lens.
This new camera and the lens were full frame instead of the smaller
Nikon DX frame I use now and used previously. As it turned out,
the D600 turned out to be a complete disaster financially, as
the shutter spewed oil all over the sensor, and Nikon initially
refused to pay for repairs. Since I had no other camera, I had
to sell, and that at a big loss. Later, Nikon agreed to do repairs
on their dime, but by that time it was to late. Just to get a
camera, I bought a D3100, and then upgraded slightly to a D5500,
which I use now. (I have owned many different cameras, from Petri
to Canon to Panasonic (Lumix), but my first serious camera was
a Nikon F which I bought at the base exchange in Atsugi in 1964.
Nikons always seem to fit, so I've always come back to the brand.)
