This is the Revello-Gram kit painted Tamiya Silver (spray can) and testors Black Lacquer (airbrished). The red stripe is vinyl, and I clear over it with urethane 2 part clear.

The kit is OK.. I like the MPC better as it seems to have a little better bit and finish. Though, It's been a while since I buit one (back 20 years ago I only built MPC Corvettes LOL

looks awsome, I got an MPC 78 Vette a few weeks ago and I agree with you, the MPC kit is nicer then the Revellogram, better detail too.

Thaks for the comments guys.

Matt. Believe it or not, I use an inexpensive Fufi dig camera with macro-mode, and a photo box set up that costs less tham 20 bucks to make.

This is the photo box...

Thanks for the picture of your setup, Jeff. I have a similar light tent with three 100-watt bulbs - one each side and one up top. My photos are a little washed out, so maybe I'll try it without the top light and some smaller bulbs in the sides...and a gray sweep.
