Old repro on the left, new repro on the right, original on the middle.
New repro fabric has a closer tone on the color but the texture grid it's smaller and it feels thinner against the original.



Something to keep in mind.

Cheers

The right one is getting close to the original!

Thanks for sharing Ozio, + on its way to Mexico. Very Happy

How about the cape on the left. Is that an original dark version which was being discussed a few months ago here and on RS??

it's getting so difficult to keep on top of all these fakes- I probably would never have picked that as fake Evil or Very Mad

Good work Ozio, the stitches seem longer and not as neat as the original.

Agreed!

Thanks buddy Very Happy
The one on the left its a fake too, could you send me a link to those threads Marco? to my knowledge there's no original dark version, through all my collecting years, the one on the middle it's the only original fabric for the LL jawa or are you talking about the variation with dark stitches?

Yes and that helps to identify it as a fake Wink

Yes, on both examples, I'll take some pics latter.

Hey Ozio, I indeed meant the cape with dark stitches, sorry for the confusion.

The texture grid it's smaller.

Thank you for posting the additional pictures Ozio. Hopefully this thread will prevent those that see it from being caught out, but I pitty the other people out there who will inevitably get stung.

Very nice research, Ozio! :clap:

How about adding it to Jawa's entry in the Ledy thread as well?

Hi collectors.

New in this forum.
Long story short:
What do you think about this 2 Jawas?
Jawa (a) was bought in the 80s. Jawa (b) is from a convention in the 90s.



Best regards

welcome
I remember your pictures from RS : http://forum.rebelscum.com/t1075338/
I thought after Deltoro showed his MOC examples of the dark stitch version it was agreed it was a variation?

Hi aussiejames.
thanks for sharing the link, because I`m a new member here, so i cant`t share links for 7 days (!?)
On the first pic from OZIO on the right side. This one looks the same as my childhood Jawa!
But he means it is a fake. I`m confused for a new time as well unsure

But i can repeat: this Jawa (a) is definitive from my childhood.
Hope it helps to make the "crazy variations LL Jawa" Very Happy make a little bit easier.

Sorry about my Englisch.

How about these ?[img][/img][img][/img] I have been unsure about the one on the right for a couple of years now.The material of the cape feels thinner and looks less shiny than my other ledy jawas. The stitching is not a good way to tell real from repro, you can get both narrow and neat as wide and sloppy stitches from the same machine depending on the skills of the person operating the machine.I have even had them under a microscope to count the number of threads per millimeter of the cloth and they match up, but when you see them it's like a brand A vs brand X washing powder commercial.
Is the one on the right one of the new repro's to watch out for ?
