, I thought I would try and do some shots of some of my Tamiya models.
Back in the late 1970's/early 80's, I would while away for hours on these kits. Incredibly detailed, they were the bees knees of model kits.
I still have three on display, of which this is one.
I have never tried close up work before and don't have a "proper" macro lens, so the 18-55 Canon kit lens was used as it can at least focus down to around 9 inches.
I placed the car on a piece of black card, slid most of it under a chest of drawers to get a dark environvent, and used natural light only.
I am quite pleased with some of the results, so depending on how this goes down, I might upload some more.
Makes a change from snow shots anyway!
Thanks for looking.
