Despite yesterday's effort not attracting much attention, I thought I would continue, for now, with some more model shots.

Having been brought up on a diet of Airfix kits, this was my first Tamiya kit. What a revelation!!

Parts didn't need trimming anymore and all went together as per the diagrams!!

I seem to remember that the kit cost me around 21 back in what I think was 1978 but I could be a year out either way on that.

as well as being my first Tamiya, it was also my first attempt at air brushing. I remember covering my Mum's dining table in newspaper to protect against overspray. It worked...... mostly!

Anyway, 32 years on, it's still in one piece and looking just as good now as it did back then.

Thanks for looking and I hope you like it too.

As a car photographer I'm a bit surprised to say this had me fooled, looking closer the dust on the front bumper and the silver pipes on the bonnet give it away as does the texture on the floor, but really it looks great, maybe adding a white reflector behind and above the roof would have helped seperate the roof from the background
Happy new year

Hi Phillip.

Thanks for your input, much appreciated. Yes, I didn't spot the dust during "the shoot" either!! It is a bit of a giveaway. Mind you, those Tamiya kits are pretty accurate! Smile

As with my previous upload, this was shot using natural light only. The "studio" was created by removing the drawers from the coffee table, then hanging a black coat over the rear opening (the drawers go all the way through) and using black card again for the floor.

I wanted a dark background but, as you say, it could do with a little more separation along the roof/windscreen line.

Anyway, all things considered, I am quite pleased with the result but I really do appreciate you taking the time to add constructive comment.
