    I was just getting re-acquainted with a photographer's work that I had made a note of, from a few years back.

    Michael Paul-Smith !

    Everyone on this forum should take a look! (and, maybe buy his book!)

    I'll post his web-site(s) when I can find that little slip of paper that just now fell behind my desk!

    His forced perspective photos and the models in them are pretty amazing, especially because he's dealing with 1/24 scale vehicles I believe.

    Hi Larry!

    I think he chooses that scale because of the variety that it offers, especially in the type you might see around an American town, and it also means that a diorama base is not too large.

    Two weeks ago I had a day and a half-ish, to do a very basic painting of a courtroom model of a strip of road. It was in 1/18th scale. Now, it was a long model on purpose, but you can imagine how hard it might be to stage a parking lot scene or an intersection in 1/12th, or 25% larger in 1/8th!! And how many of us have that many finished models?

    Interesting that I've never seen any of the "Masters" stage a scene with multiple models? -A team of racecars, or recreating a fictional "motorama"?

    -Don

    Cool looking set. I think the reason you don't see the master do scenes with multiple cars such as a race team is they feel so "done" with their custom or scratch builds they need a break! I was never a very detailed modeler - at least on the level of what appears on this site, and I left it behind long ago. Then got back into trying to make bodies for my RC car and here I am - took three years to get my Vette anywhere near finished (still more detail to add) , and just passed three with the Jag, and neither of them is a scratch build Movie Sets in Miniature,Classic Cars. !
