Lovely! I'm inspired....bought a 1/24 scale Bugatti Type 55 in a junk shop today for £10 as a test subject ( mint and boxed too!). I think the in camera focus stacking feature on my G9 might work well. Lighting obviously a key element....loads of fun beckons.

Can you send me a few raw files? I’m dying to add these photos to a road scene with some motion blur in PS!
