Thanks you, Sirs!! :danke: :danke: :danke:
Silver models indeed perform very well in a dark scenary, Simon!
I've also had red ones looking quite nicely in low light and I'm convinced that a dark background is favourable for yellow and orange models too.
Looking forward to a planned shooting with 2 yellow cars - I just need to find some time... :nice:

You're absolutely right - but just compare the width of the tires... :omg:

I would imagine if you made tyres for both of these in real life they may well be around the same price what being the 1947 car would have to be specially made ?

That's true. And think of the complete car: A LaFerrari would not be cheap to buy, for sure - but what might the 125S bring if it was for sale? :twocents: :twocents: :twocents:

I'd say a bit of both. I remember the first time I saw a Bugatti Type 35B and thought "this is even smaller than our every day city cars...." and still, these sould reach like 200km/h with skinny tyres and win races (lots and lots of them).Really astonished by how compact it was (and yet there's a straight-8 under the hood!).

Dirk, your photos are realy exquisite. I rather more analytical photos but every now and then I like this kind of photos. Seing your Maisto 911 GT1 reminded me of a Strassenversion I made based on one:

Yeah, the original engine is cheap but with a bit (lot...) of work you can make something nice to look at (IMO):

Sorry for highjacking your topic...

Thank you friends!!! Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image
These veterans indeed are so tiny. Almost looking like toys cars - but as X-Filer said: They were real race cars in those days when legends were born...
And it's true: The direct comparison to a big modern supecar gives a bit of a funny impression. Posted Image
Anyway, for me it was pure fun to create these pictures and play around with Photoshop. Glad you liked the results!!! Posted Image

@X-Filer: Not sure whether I get what you mean by "analytical photos" but it seems to me that the community is divided in 2 camps:
1) Some are fans of super-realistic photos where you ideally are not able to decide whether it is a model or a real car.
2) Others who prefer more studio-like scenaries creating a "clean" and to some degree artificial atmosphere that  emphazise the beauty of a car.

As you know I find myself more in the second camp but nevertheless I very much enjoy all these super-realistic pics of the DXers and I appreciate the effort that is needed to create such photos (building dioramas, outside shooting ...)!!
At the end all our pictures represent our love to cars, our models and the wish to create a perfect impression... Posted Image

BTW: You're welcome and your streetcar mod of the 911 GT1 looks cool - well done! :eusa_clap:

Basically the same car - one tuned for Grand Prix Racing and the other optimized for high speed.
