Default My Broom Broom...

Inspired by photosbyvito's post, this is my 1/18 Kyosho Cobra 427, my dream car. The first picture is "as is" and the rest were slightly touched up and edited in PSP7 to remove most of the reflections.

nice job! yours would be much more believable that it is a real car....mainly cuz it is too dark to see around the car....and this must've been more expensive cuz it is much more detailed.....nice car btw

They're are expensive, roughly 50. But as you say they have more detail. Such as rubber seats, material lining in the interior and they're mostly metal.

Incidentally, for the lighting all I used was a 40watt desk lamp, my halogen lamps in my ceiling (five 20watt bulbs scattered about) and the camera flash.

oh well mine was 20 dollars....and i used a flashlight(moved around to different spots during an 8 second exposure) and in one shot (the one where you can see the bg more) i used a 25 watt lamp that you can clip on to to stuff.....i use it to read at night...but i've found it good for close ups

Default the car of my dreams

since people are showing off the car they would like to own, heres mine. Even though Im female it does not stop me being a car fanatic along with my hubby and sons.

This car is an Australian Cobra (ford) 1978 modle xc, V8 3.51cc and only 1000 were made so they are collectors cars now. When they came out I loved them, I was 18 and I still would love to get hold of one that has been cared for.

Oh, I did NOT take this pic

I thought you had some $$$ lights there but you did a fantastic job with your lamps. Excellent!
