After Friday’s post with the Simca 1000 Rallye 2 I was a bit unsatisfied with the rolling shots I only seemed to get a bit working “driving” it backwards. Luckily I’ve got a great Italian friend always willing to lend a hand: My trusty old Del Prado Lancia Integrale.
I stiffened and enlarged the moving construction to both carry camera and push the car so I could use bigger road pieces and I think I’m getting there. And I put a big piece of stucco-board to put over the keyboard of the laptop to create a bigger flat surface for the construction to roll on.
I’m sure many of you will recognize the road the little Delta is heading for: with this setup I need a hilly road/track to make it work a bit “visibly”. I think it came out pretty well. For those who wonder/are interested how the construction works:
The camera is on the pink/brown platform on the left but this is still before the last improvements were made. It’s gotten quite bigger in the end...
Not sure if I’ll use it a lot because setting it up is time consuming already ;-)
You could use a different road surface, no problem:
That one has more depth due to those curbstones actually having some form. Or you could change the surface and the back ground:
But that will leave much more experimenting for getting proper backgrounds... I could add a bit of Teutonic beverage to complete this Spaghetti Sunday though.
That’s it for today: Ciao Tutti!!!
