Thanks guys. I'm not a fan of full interior kits though.

Interesting seeing the model next to a forest.

I've been wondering if I should make some trickery to my Challenger tank, by blending two photo, so that I can show this tank in a farm field, and remove the excess (the stand) so that the tank *maybe* looks like it is really in the field in 1:1 size. 🙂 That way one can match the lighting and get some realistic shadows, and match it with the field nearby, if one takes the photos at the same time of day and with the same angle vs sun/shadows.

If you are using your phone's camera it has amazing capabilities to give depth of field or to bore down, I encourage you to do this! Also it's not trickery, it's art. Frankly I photograph outdoors because there is no substitute for sunlight to add realism.

I've just finished the Tiger I by Trumpeter and it's on my finish table for weathering, will post another album later this week. Having built the Tiger I by Academy, AFV Club and Tamiya, this was the best; the cast surface texturing was superb.

Superb detail on exhaust pipe, rust/texture is very convincing! Bravo!

You should have a go at the Trumpeter kit one day Anna, it's really one of their better ones.

Thank you Wayne, all I need to do for inspiration is look at the piles of rusty junk outside my barn ha!
