The question of worth is always a tough one to answer! :tempted :tempted As for the Gulf ones, there are 3 short-tail versions and 3 long-tails ones. Good luck making that decision!! :cheersMockingBird said:wonder if i should get this car..hmm..is it worth it? or maybe a Gulf? which should i get..hmmm
Thanks Kurt. I really like th black wheels and livery on this car. As it was made with slightly older manufacturing processes, the paint quality doesn't compare to the newer AutoArt's. Even the quality of details are just "passable" if you compare to today's standards. That said, it's not likely anyone else will be making these F1 GTRs which means the supply of these 1:18 cars will not increase in the future. I guess that's why I bit the bullet to get my F1 GTRs. :cheersKurt said:Awesome pics Felix! Very :cool1 model!
Thanks for the kind words about the pics. I'm still trying hard to improve the way I take pics of cars with lots of white on them. I've re-shot the Art Soorts on 3 separate occassions and they all turned out poorly. I'll get it right one day!!Getter 3 said::drool :drool :drool
I don't have any F1, but that's going to change very soon. :happy
Great shots as usual SM. :danbanna :cheers
Improve your shots? :confusedStygianMax said:Thanks for the kind words about the pics. I'm still trying hard to improve the way I take pics of cars with lots of white on them. I've re-shot the Art Soorts on 3 separate occassions and they all turned out poorly. I'll get it right one day!!
So which F1 GTR do you think you try to get first?
The trouble I have with white is my lighting technique. Too little light means the details don't punch out. Too much light means the contours of the body panels get "washed out" almost as if there's too much contrast in an image. In that case, the curves of the body panels kind of disappear. Don't worry about me "setting the bar" higer any time soon. I'm a slow learner in photography. :lol :lolGetter 3 said:Improve your shots? :confused
I don't see anything about these shots that need improving. :cheers If you continue to raise the bar for photo shooting, I'd be too embarrass to post my blurry pics! Don't do it! :happy :cheers
As for the F1s - I would like to get my hands on either Franck Muller's #53 or the long tail Loctite #41 because it's such a wicked looking F1 - black out wheels and all. :cheers
Off the top of my head, it's just the number "53" that are decals. There'd be three of them; one on each door and one on the hood. I'll double-check on the Union Jack and let you know about whether those are decals or tampo prints.Getter 3 said:Thank you!!! :drool :drool :drool
You've mentioned the decals... I wasn't aware that these use decals. I thought all the graphics are tampo printed. Thank you very much for the heads up as I know very little about these particular models. :cheers
Now if these were robots... :lol
