This is it, folks! I got this beast a few months ago, but it wasn't until recently that I had the supplies and motivation to take some truly quality pictures of it. This is the first time that I've used lighting other than the bulbs in my ceiling fan and a background. After I took the shots, I touched them up using my camera software to maximize the impact they'll make.

So now I present to you my first GMP - the 1972 Pontiac GTO (#2033 of 3,996)!!! :woohoo


I call this my "LUW shot." :giggle




And finally, my favorite one of all, shrouded in shadow... :cool


EDIT: I'm very sorry to edit your post, but please read this notice. Kindly keep picture dimensions within 640 x 480 pixels and with a maximum file size of not more than 55 KB. Thanks for your cooperation!

Beautiful car SF :nicejob

This one is one of the best GTOs in my opinion :danbana

These are by far, your best pics ever! Congrats :cheers
But...

Please keep the pictures no bigger than 640x480 so that the forum's layout doesn't get upset, and members don't have to scroll side to side to see the whole picture.

Please do post pictures, it's one of the reasons that DX is so great, but please abide with these guidelines, so that everyone can enjoy DX. If you have any doubts, questions or comments, please shoot away or contact one of the staff.


If you could edit them down in size it would be greatly appreciated :cheers

Congrats SF! The ductail version is one of my favorates of the GMP GTOs! The photos are great too!

BTW,you can contact GMP and have them send you the correct rear valance and exhaust if you want it 100% correct. The do it free of charge.
I got mine a while back but have never taken the time to fix it.

I also agree, it won't be your last! :giggle

Thank you, Jeff! I was determined to make them revolutionary in my growth as a diecast photographer. :cheers I felt an $80 model needs an extra-special effort.

ACK! Sorry about the size. I reduced them to the right file size on Photo Bucket, but I guess I didn't get the dimensions right. :nutkick None of the specs match from program to program. I resized them to 640 X 480, but Photo Bucket is acting up. I'll reload them ASAP. :cheers

Yeah, they've got a lot working for them, VLB. They're heavy on weight AND detail. :lol
