Your mum trusts you with sharp modeling knifes but not a camera :?

P.S. I love they way you have managed to get the HO site in the back ground!

OMG! That's what I need to do. Stand them on white paper. And I've been cracking my head trying to figure out why the lighting sucks on my mini Photos.

Not bad at all. One suggestion: go over the silver parts of the model with straight black ink, taking care not to pool it too much. Water it down even if you wish but in either case, this will take the 'shine' out of the metal and give it a more gritty, lifelike look. Check out the pic of my marine squad to see what I mean:

Well wraith i did a test model with the blank ink, came out alright, a little sloppy, would post it, but seems like something is up with the forum, wont let me post it, soooo my next question, what happened to HO to have it go all funky was a period of time where i couldnt log in and now its all black/silver for me... so whats up

K heres my test model with the black ink, its my first try and also practiced it on my worst looking model, looks alright, its hard to not pool it on the flatter surfaces though, since it just either sits there in a pool or completely reabsorbs into the brush
