This is an example of the models on hand. I have requested several items through this producer and have been extremely happy with his work. https://www.shapeways.com/product/T4FHHEY73/1-32-cal-50-wc-pedestal-mount-m39?optionId=60734094

'A' key missing? Looks like a lot of work to substitute ' for it each time, although I see that it is available for your later post. Bet that's a relief. Just an observation.

Even "captains" can make mistakes.

If you mean "captions", then it's just poor editing.

Those books that I have seen in the series are uniformly shocking in terms of caption accuracy. I think it's more about ignorant authors than poor editing (which would be more evident if there were lots of layout issues). Still, they come up cheaply from time to time and the photos can be useful, as well as having ref numbers. I would never pay retail for one.
