We recorded Episode 12 last night for the Live and Let Diecast Podcast. Our guest was TE71 Xin. I walked away being inspired by his ability to photograph 1/64 scale cars. I’m impressed by a lot of the great photography on these pages, but the small cars are really hard to shoot.

I took this Hot Wheels McLaren F1, which was a gift, and tried to photograph it in several environments to see what I could do. The only thing I’m not happy with was the time of day, but being up at dawn is hard and afternoons are busy. These are lunch time photos. Let me know what you think.
