When I first saw this, I didn't catch the title - my models!
It was about the fourth pic when I started noticing details like how thick door posts were on the cars and a couple of "funny" looking shrubs.
Really amazing model work and photography.
Is there a way to change the timing of the slide show? I'd really like more time to study them.

Yeah, what he said. Nice work. I showed my wife without telling her they were models and she asked what was so special about the pictures. Then I told her and then she was simply amazed.

I'd be curious to know how long it take you to set something like this up. I hope to see more.

You need to go to the artist's flicker page where he describes how each photo was set-up and shot. There is absolutely no Photoshop use in any of this.

He also did a number of reproductions of period car ads which are pretty cool too, like these:







The guy is definitely talented, and, at least to my mind, one his greatest talents has to be patience!

Cheers!

And, those aren't just your run-of-the-mill Revelle or Monogram model kits either - those are serious collector quality, the kind that retail starting at $300 and up.

Look at the dash detail on that drop-top Impalla, or the door card and door latch mechanism on the open door Impalla coupe, or the tailgate detail on the Buick 'Woodie'.

If you totalled all those up, there's at least a Boxster or maybe even a Cayman's worth - I knew I could spin at least some Porsche content into this thread.


Cheers!

Yikes!

I was a pattern/tool maker and a model maker for years, but this is amazing. I have done a lot of photography also in my life and his skill is amazing. His sense of perspective and proportion is a real talent.
