Default 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.

OK, then, here goes I hope.....



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 . . . .

Great looking shelves !!

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

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

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.




This one using a photo that was reduced in size.






Hope this helps you out................

Happy Huntin'.........

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.

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.)
