This was the first 1:43 I bought. It's made by IXO in 1:43 and a pretty inexpensive model. It's livery really caught my eyes and I just had to get it. Little did I know this would only be the beginning of my long slide down the 1:43 slope. :giggle

Great pics Felix! :cheers If they ever make this one in 1/18, I will have to break my no-race car rule and pick one up.

What a beautiful car & livery. :nicejob All shades of blue came out so nice... :happy

These beautiful pics were shot with natural light, correct? I can tell the difference now (I think). :cheers

Thanks Souky. See an example of some cool 1:43 stuff you're missing out on? :giggle :tempted :giggle You're absolutely right about the natural light. Something tells me an overcast day might have been better to shoot in as the light would be a little more diffused. It seems a little "concentrated" in just one area of the car for each shot.

Here are a couple shots I took using halogen lights so you can see the difference. The colours seem a little more washed out.

wow, nice! I really like this model! Congrats, Felix/Jeff (which one is it? :lol)

The details look as good as, if not better, than Minichamps's. How much do IXO's usually run at?

If there's trouble going on, you may call me 'Jeff'. If you're writing a check to me, 'Felix' works better. :giggle

I picked this up on eBay from a US vendor for US$18. Shipping was only $6. (That's less than half the typical shipping cost from the US to Toronto for a 1:18 car.)

It was good to see Bernhard get black flagged for that eventhough it looked like its was a bad oops on his part and not a deliberate punt. Liddell got punted earlier that morning by Max Papis in the Caddy at the same turn earlier Sunday morning too. A repeat of that scene would have really sucked.

Well, the price was right so I went for it. I don't know about being superhuman with the camera bit. :giggle You have no idea how many junkie shots I end up taking before getting one good one. All I can say is that I'm glad I don't have to pay for film developing!!! :lol :lol

That's a great looking Saleen. Blue on white cars always look good to me. Pics are up to your usual standards, of course.
