I was sick of my photos looking “noisy” and having reflections from the overhead lights. Thanks to the lald community, I figured out this new set up.
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.
Just a few phone test shots of a black car in the dark.
Greetings, everyone! Long time, no post. But, also, long time no hawl. However, tables turned, and I had an excellent mail hawl recently! This pair of beauties here.
And it’s a sheet of glass! Thought I’d try it out. Cell phone pics to follow:
This beauty has been in the box for a while. I received it from Jobjoris last Fall but refrained from detailing it until it had some company in the detailing booth. More on that later!
Sorry for not posting as much anymore...job plus school leaves me no time for photoshoots. Then forgetting to transfer photos...so heres some pics ive taken...may contain diecast...and other items
We’ve shared a number of budget-friendly, DIY solutions to light up your photos and videos. But maybe you still need something that’s equally as easy on the wallet and sturdy to hold up your DIY lights. Well, here you go: a light stand that’s made out of PVC and costs you less than $5.
Truck Tuesday Trifecta, triple Ts! There are actually two Chevrolet 3100s, also called Chevrolet Brasil. The blue and white from DeAgostini and the tow truck from Eaglemoss, from a very short-lived series called “Nossas Queridas Picapes” (Our Beloved Pick-up trucks). The SUV is called Chevrolet Amazonas, built over…
Got a table with three legs or happen to have a small one lying around? Don’t junk it, turn them into a studio for your diecast cars!
Built in Brazil, by a German company, and styled by Carrozzeria Fissore, from Italia. Seems like an improbable mix, but this was a recipe that turned out very well. Ladies and gentlemen, I present the 1967 DKW-Vemag Fissore.
The title of this theme day is very appropriate. This little 1/64 is a true wonder. We all know how AutoArt crafts truly beautiful 1/18 replicas, but they also had a line of smaller 1/64 casts. This is my first and only one 1/64 AutoArt, and it’s simply amazing. They managed to put tiny brake discs, detailed engine,…
Porsche, DLM, ORAT, Brazilian Cars and Shepherdzilla!
First, a glad new orbit around the Sun for everyone! As usual at the end of each year, it’s my turn to do a review of something. This is an “index” of all my Feijoada Friday posts. For who doesn’t know what it’s about, I’m telling the history of Brazilian cars one model at a time, using photos of 1/43 models of each…
Let’s have look at Tomica’s latest casting, the Honda Fit, which was released earlier in the month. (The nameplate “Jazz” is used in Europe, Oceania, the Middle East, Africa, Australia and most parts of Asia, while the name “Fit” is used in Japan, China and the Americas.)
From the very first Skyline GT-R, we jump straight into the very last one for this week's 日本の日曜日. But wait, isn't there the R35 GT-R? Well, you see, Carlos Ghosn dropped the 'Skyline' moniker for the R35 because he didn't want the flagship of Nissan to share the same badge of with a sedan.
I don't know the make, but I suspect it's an IXO made for DeAgostini. I traded it with a friend of mine years ago! It is in 1:43 scale and it has a very nice amount of detail.
I am fan of this casting from Hot Wheels, including the one with insane propulsion thrusters on its truck bed. After losing a few auctions for the HW garage version and being quite sore about it, this Mike and Ike version was bought out of spite like a placeholder of sorts.
Looking a little festive as well. Only 9 months until Christmas! To the day, even. I swear I didn't plan that.
And a preview for French Friday :)
