On June 26, I proposed a new model, Western Auto Supply DC3902, and also uploaded several photos of it. This is the name of the first photo that I uploaded...  USA_Western_Auto_Supply_Co-Truetone_DC3902_Front

After each uploaded photo, I received acknowledgement that the photo was uploaded successfully, yet the model still does not appear on your site.

Did I do something wrong where trying to set up a new model did not work?
