Since we're whining...    Please don't take model contest pictures while standing.  Those roof shots look like you were on a third floor balcony! Squat down and get the camera at table level!   :lol:

Oh, yeah.  Don't take pictures with your lens cap on!  

 

 

And don't take pictures through a jar of clear jello.

Yes they do, the Enzo looks a bit better but the colors? Don't know what possessed you to chose them.

So any 1/1 car with metallic paint out on the street on a sunny day is... incorrect?  :blink:

LOL, I am so glad to see everyone having some fun with this instead of it turning into a flame war.  Meaneyme, I hope everyone has made your day a little better.  :D

The idea is not to create controversy, definitely not the intention here, I myself am not the greatest model builder but it is pretty basic to see that a metallic paint under the sun at this scale looks pretty bad. Compare pictures under a cloudy day vs a sunny day and you will see how much better the ones under the cloudy days will look.

I disagree. If the sun and the model are at the right angles, it can produce some great photos. I take photos in both sunlight and shade. I have as many or more good photos of metallic painted models in the sun as I do in the shade.

I have to agree with Kevin, no way a car at this scale looks better under the sun, Metallics at this scale will always be too big. You can always try a really sunny day but you must always defuse the light enough so that metallics may look right.

May I add this:

 

STOP POSTING FUZZY PICTURES!!! Especially if they are taken with a digital camera! You can take pics until the battery dies!!! 

 

Fuzzy pic? Just dump it and try again!!! Don't be lazy!!!!

 

Ok, I feel better, thanks!

Daddyfink, that one? I will never understand..... The picture is right in your face when you finish taking it, no? And yes, it's like you can't take another one....

"Attention Attention! Everyone stop buying metallic model paint ! If the sun just happens to hit it, it will look awful! That is all!"

 

You should get a job with a paint company in the marketing department.

 

Flats ARE the new Metallic you know! :huh:

 

 

 

 

 

BTW the Enzo is my 11 year old daughter's pride. First model she built.
