Thank you

 

It would probably cost more to ship it to the UK than it's worth.  Nice try though.

Awesome job! I love the chipping and paint flaking. When I saw the vertically stacked ammunition I thought you had used 22 rimfire.

I had to double check the barrel. :P

Good idea, cleaning up and painting 75 rounds was no fun and some pf them were 4 color which was even more fun.

 

Thanks Garry

IS REALLY QUITE ANGRY!!!

 

Your final photos simply aren't good enough. That needs to be sat in some short dry grass with out-of-focus undergrowth in the background!!

How do you delete a topic?

:D:D

You can't. (only admin can... I think)

 

You'll just have to put that thing in some vegetation, take some more photos and post them here. Or else!

 

Rearguards,

Badder.

I tried to delete some of the crappy pictures and that doesn't work either so I guess I live with it.

 

No room for dioramas, especially one big enough to do a 1/16 model justice and no skill to actually create one.

No need for a diorama. I wasn't suggesting you made one. I just meant that photographing it on a table in your back garden isn't the best option, and it would look much better with some vegetation around it, even if that vegetation is giant in scale.... Something like this....

 Although this would have been better without the plant pot in the background.

I get the sense that you mistook my 'is really very angry' comment as being a serious criticism of your photos. The photos are fine. Basically, what I've been saying is 'that's a stunning model' and if I were you (and recognising that it's too large a model to appear in a diorama) I'd place it somewhere that would make the model look more like a life-sized tank in a real setting..... rather than on a table with a brick wall, door and windows in the background. That tank in amongst the vegetation, would photograph AS a diorama.

OK here it is outside, ignore the giant grass.  

 

And here is a 1/16 Trumpeter Soviet SU100 work in progress, the giant leaf blew in just as I snapped the pic.

Thanks. Those photos are so much better. I think most will agree.

I've been following the SU100 WIP, and it's another stunner.

I do love the trumpeter build quality. Nice work!! N much better photos as @Badder says.

I find the best way to get photographs of these is to lay on the ground. 

 

Heres one I took of my RC Opel Blitz

Try getting the camera to the height a man would be and looking up :-). Then Insure a clean background with any foliage in the background being far away. :-) 

keep up the good work!!

Now that's impressive!

 

Thanks Steve

 

I see what Badder means about more natural pictures, now I have to wait until winter to take photos of my white washed trio.......

 

Take care,

 

Lloyd
