New from California
 
Just stumbled on this board and thought I'd check it out since my collection primarily consists of 1:64 M2 Machines. Upwards of 40-50 of approximately a 100 car collection that is currently and ever growing. I have some new display shelves I just built for displaying them but there are a couple of models that are other, somewhat larger, scales. Should I remove them and retake pictures before posting them in this forum? Don't want to inadvertently break any rules.

Welcome to forum 1/64 Duncan,

The forum here is pretty loose as far as rules go...............

I collect all scales, my 1/64 collection is up to about 600 pieces,Mostly GreenLight and M2,got about 100 pieces of Johnny Lightning's,mostly older
castings...............

Have fun here..........post away and pictures are most welcome..........

I have other shelves of diecast cars, etc., but they are a mix of scales.

Hmm, I wonder if maybe I should get more closeups . . . .

Nice collection, Dunks!! More pictures is always better than less pictures. lol

Dude !!!!!!!

Great looking shelves !!

Close-ups are great................

And it is so easy to add a backdrop for 1/64 size cars..........

OK, I've been wondering how people do those backdrops?

It is really not that hard................

Sometimes I use a post card but most of my backgrounds are a picture I reduce in size to about 6X4................

This one was done useing a post card and some photoshop.

Aha! I have tried that to a certain extent already (a couple of pictures I have on my computer below), but only for my own amusement. For some strange reason it never occurred to me to use it for 'public' viewing.

Super shots................

And you keep those all to youself???

Shame on you...............

Some new arrivals. Found a few pictures - the street/building and the barn scene I got off the internet, the picture in the parking lot with the mountains in the background is one I took in Utah. Thought I would use them to try out the background idea. I guess I'll let you decide which background you prefer. (btw, the road material in each picture is of my own making.)
