1/8 Ford GT40Mk1 and Yui - Off to the races

Hello everyone,

back when I started scratch building 1/8 model cars I did it because I wanted something for my figure collection to act as background. Several years later I've got some of those big cars made and I'm finally taking pictures!

Due to the size of 1/8 scale stuff it's hard to make a complete diorama like most of you guys here do, so for now I settled on creating smaller scenes. On the picture below there's Yui (collectible figure of an anime character, comes fully painted and assembled, the helmet is scratchbuilt) and my GT40 ( http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/topic/118925-18-ford-gt40-mk1-scratch-built/ ) taking the center. For the surroundings I made a concrete road and Jersey barriers plus I used some real plants and artificial ones for fish tanks. The sky backdrop is a backlit photo print on polyester cloth.

Hope you like the setup!
