Welcome to Models by me, I hope you enjoy having a look around, these are all models I have built straight from the box over many years and the photography of them. Some information is included on each model including, the type, make, scale and actual build time. You will also find basic Exif data on the slides, showing some of the camera settings used when I photographed them….
I always build out of the box, I never use etched or third party enhancements so all additional detail is scratch built, i am not a purist so you will most likely find inaccuracies if you are, I do use an airbrush for most of the painting and yes I modelled the sea too.
To view all Models by Scale and Models by list, use the links at the top, or in the sidebar. On the model pages simply click on any thumbnail in a gallery to bring up a Lightbox, all images are a maximum 1100 pixels wide by a proportional height at 72 dpi (This keeps bandwidth usage down).
You are free to use the images, but in strict accordance with the license they are covered by. All the photographs on this site, unless otherwise stated are published under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International License.
Every slide shows basic EXIF metadata, although you can only see it using the lightbox. The photographs have not and never will be ‘photoshopped’.
The main camera used is a Canon PowerShot A3300 IS, although I do use custom settings on the shoot, it is essentially a point and shoot camera. I use a lot of lighting and filters, I like to use as much natural light as possible, and it can take a whole day to complete a shoot on just one model, HMS Victory took a whole weekend. I crop each image and occasionally add lighting post shot using lightroom by Adobe, this is brilliant to catalogue/archive all the shots and backs everything up just in case and as a photographer, this program is a life saver.
