Nice collection of Yaks Lars. Shame a certain memeber on here doesn't come out of retirement and share his Yak army. :)

Great collection, Lars! I wasn't really sure if the head colour variants were real, but presumably you are satisfied that they are indeed all genuinely different and not simply starting to discolour? Would it be possible to have a close-up photo showing the colour difference of both the heads and the legs? Your photos are good, but a little bit grainy, as if a flash wasn't used?

As ever, I am always keen to learn about new variants that look different from one another, so if Yak also has true variants, I'm interested! :-)

Sadly, I do know Yak's body is prone to discolouration as I actually have a 4th loose Yak which is starting to change colour, but only at the front and only on his right-hand side :-(

Correct, I was thinking about PGowdy, I do not remember why he is not here anymore, but I remember that I talked with him sometimes and he had a huge yak face collection.

Any one who remember why is not here anymore and where he is ?

Thanks mate for the kind words, I am also not sure about the head colours are real, some say they are and others say it is discolour :? I try to keep my mind open, I am sure that some would also have said 15 or 20 years ago poch figures with pale hands also is discolour today we look after the pale hands to ID them :lol: the same with melt marks etc. etc. Sure I can try to take some close-up pictures, finally we got some rain when I took the picture so it was dark and maybe why the picture is grainy :? I never use the flash, I try to use sunligt but it does not always work when it rain :lol:

Sorry to read you have a 4th discolour, I also have one where the chest is beginning to change :( A friend of mine had 10 yak faces a few years ago, he had them with him when he visited me and we comapred them with mine to look after difference or new variants between them. They were the same as the 2 that I have, also the no coo was the same.

I remember there was a link about it on tig a few years ago http://www.imperialgunneryforum.com/t38 ... white-head
