Diecast Scale Model Photography and Reviews







DIECAST PHOTOS & REVIEWS

When a new model is introduced, the manufacturers typically create marketing materials with small images which have a soft focus or have been retouched. As a result, they only give an impression of the model, not the kind of close-up detailed look we all want before deciding whether to add them to our collections.
 
Because I enjoy photography, and like most of you I really enjoy my models, I hope the photographs that follow do justice to them both. I take my inspiration from others in the hobby (you know who you are), who have influenced my style and given me advice. I hope you will enjoy the results...
