Shelby Collectables 1/18........................

I think that is the first real Shelby Collectible I have seen. Looks like they do very nice ones. I really like that color - and stripes. But did Ford really put those orange inserts in the seats? Not their best decision, I think.

btw, where do you get all the beautiful pictures you post, not only here but in other threads like the fantastimajorical, etc.?

The Shelby Collectables are really a nice 1/18 diecast for about $38.........
I have got quite a few of his 1/64 as well,some are pretty good others are kind of like your GL Charger.........:confused:

I take all my own pics..................;)

You take all your own pics??? You must have some camera/setup/whatever.

I do, but a lot of yours look like they were done for some slick magazine ad or something, very professional looking.

I have heard of making those light boxes, but what is that - is it fabric - thing framing the subject? Of course, I don't have anything close to that camera, just a somewhat good digital camera.

And how do you get that shiny reflective ground surfaces and backgrounds?

Duncan,
Here is one of my First set ups.
http://i114.photobucket.com/albums/n...iorama29vl.jpg

The First camera I used to shoot my cars.......
http://i114.photobucket.com/albums/n...n511/hp215.jpg

I then got this canon camera
http://i114.photobucket.com/albums/n...orn511/a95.jpg

When I got the Canon 20D I hated it (Christmas present from the wife) I still used the A95 for almost a year.I finally got a different lens for the 20D and haven't looked back........................Gave the A95 to the wife........

Yes,the light tent is a fabric on a wire frame,the part you are refering to is the"front" The piece that is draped downward from the "opening" is a flap that you can put up so that just the camera lens goes through the "hole.
".

The refective floor is a piece of Glass laid down under the car.

Hope this helps.........................

One more thing,the two most important things of photographing the small 1/64's is "lighting" also something to stabilize your camera........I use a tri-pod for that.

Interesting
 
Looking back through various topics in this forum, I found this one.
Extremely interesting.
I always wondered how you got all those QUALITY images.
Most importantly, thanks for sharing.

We need to see more things like this to help out others like myself.
Tips and ideas are definitely welcome.

Cheers. Cobra
