Looks great Dave!
I've passed on the links to my brothers buddies at the firehouse in Los Gatos. One of the firefighters has been thinking of trying to build his own after seeing what you do. They are still trying to convince the chief to put a flame paint job on one of the rigs!

Looking Fantastic, Dave!
I started on my Fury last night. cleaned up the flash and gave the once over sanding before priming.
It is a very nice kit with lots of little extras to apply to other kits...
I've been reading book after book on building shadow boxes and diorama's and i'm going to do some wall mountable scenes that don't take up shelf space.
I'll be a wood working fool this spring, lol...

You got any pics of those shadow boxes?
I'd like to browse your work in that area and see how you did them...

Looking good Dave Smile
You really have some great models.
And I can see you have been to Moab - I’d love to go there for a "First BASE" course - I think its one of the only places where you can go BASE jumping legally Big Smile (apart from Norway and France - gotta get to Norway some time when I have the skills...)

Just a small thing though.... you might want to put your email adress on the "Send me an e-mail" link Wink

Get yourself a good photo editing program so you can adjust, fix and enhance your pics before uploading them to the site.
Unless you have one already. some cameras come with a CD that has an editing program of some sort with it in the package.
If not, there are a ton of decent ones out there from free on up the price scale...

I can definitely recommend Photoshop - I have been using it professionally for over 10 years now - killer program!
It might be overkill for just adjusting a few photos though...
If you have any problems Dave, just send them to me and I’ll tweak them - you have my adress Smile

That's incredible Dave. Where did you get the kits for the older vehicles? I'd like to try to build some of them. I love that FDNY ambulance. Which kit was that and where can I get one? Thanks for sharing.
I'm hopelessly addicted to building models. Not finishing them, just building them.

thanks for the kinds words guys. i re-shot some pics today, i think they came out better, i went outside and shot them, also added a 4th page.
thanks for all the help with the photo shop stuff thomas,dracko, i think my main problem was just trying to snap pics in the house with low light.??
hot ford coupe, the fdny ambulance is from the AMT kit, it was sold as a RESCUE 911 ambulance ( from the t.v. show) , i just added the high top , the lights are from beading section at hobby lobby, the decals are from a sheet from chimneyville.
