Hi everyone!

During the last couple of months there have been some spin-offs from my "BEAUTIES IN THE DARK" topic in the "DX Classic / Vintage" sub-group and I have started to do some daylight shootings too. This means that my footprint in the forum is becoming more and more fragmented - so I got the idea to consolidate my pictures in a member showcase.

To give it a start I will summarize what I shared since end of last year adding text, pictures and links here step by step.

Stay tuned...  :rolleyes:

Thanks, Darren! :danke:
The Bentley Blower is indeed a fascinating car, but with the model I wasn’t 100% satisfied. Too much plastic parts compared to its price and compared to other high end models (e.g. CMC White Elephant). Meanwhile sold the model...

That’s the danger with DX, Cornbeef! ;-)
Don’t wait too long, if you really want one - prices have started to rise (only the yellow version is still in production)...

Thank you so much friends! :danke: :danke: :danke:

Fair to say that it's not too difficult to get good photos of the 250 GTO because of the outstanding beauty of the car... Posted Image

@David: You do not neccessarily need a professional studio to create this kind of pictures - great part of the pics is created by the help Photoshop.
If you're interested how simple the setup is where the Uhlenhaut and GTO pictures have been taken you can have a brief look (admittedly I meanwhile improved my setup a little bit but it still is very basic.)
