    I finally got my model room back in order, and have started to photograph my models. I dont have much of a light set up, so Im winging it with a 60 watt bulb and Christmas lights
    I have been having trouble with my computer and the colours being off, so I hope these look o.k.
    Any ideas would be appreciated.

    They're very good considering your lighting rig!

    I would recommend using a 100W bulb and hanging a bit of paper over the front to eliminate some of the tungsten. You can also help it a bit by drawing (scribbling with a biro) some blue lines on the paper to cool the colour temperature slightly. Be careful it doesn't all catch fire though - most desk lamps aren't rated for 100W and especially not with a bit of paper hindering the air-flow.

    Cool models by the way - your own work?

    Thanks Rob. I appreciate your comment.
    I never thought of the paper trick. I used to use a tissue over my onboard flash to defuse that but never thought of the paper over the light. I will try it.
    Yes, these are mine. The little skeleton dude was left over from a kit I had. I did come conversions, and gave him an axe. The gravestone is just modeling putty.
    The dragon is a kit, but the base and everything else on it is scratch built. The base is made from small pieces of wood,Kitty litter(not dirty stuff though) and putty for the rocks, hand painted them and the a few other small things.
    Thanks again.

    Man, those things are very impressive. I assume you have people pay you for some of that stuff. If not you better get on it. My uncle does alot of that. Warhammer 40K and stuff like that. When I was younger he sent me like an entire Ork army! I never really got into it though.. rather expensive!

    Thanks everyone.
    Aprilraven...there is a ton I cant do.:D I cant knit. Im not allowed to have those big needles.:lmao:
    Airic...so that mean..your gonna come to my Halloween display next year. :lol:
    Ghoste.... nah.. I have never sold anything. I used to do them to solve my over energetic creative times. I always wanted to get into movie sets,prop building and special effects. I have tried a few times, but because I do not have any "professional" training and a piece of paper that says I can do stuff..the turn ya away. I find I always want to create things, but I have never sold anything.
    Thanks again all. :thumbup:

    I agree... you should sell your stuff. You are a very creative individual. Very nice work!
