  • 1930 Autocar rack body

    Thanks to Rich (pennman)I acquired a few more of the Roco model done here with a scratch built rack body. Didn't waste any time getting to one of these Rich. The first complete build in the new shop.





    The money shot

        looks really nice chester I like the light in the photo's can you show how you make these pictures ?

        I liked the Idea of the photo dio so I try to make a speed-shop showroom set up with a checkered floor as in the pictures of my Ratrod

        I still like the roco model but never find one, this one has a nice blue on it in combination with the red wheels it looks great

          Very nice indeed, Chester, and it is good to see the new shop in 'action'.

            Thanks guys,

            DJ, my incandescent lamp (60W bulb) over my workbench is on a swing arm. I just move it around the box (last photo in this thread http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/t...TOPIC_ID=42399). It's just a matter of viewing how the light enters the box. Believe me, I'm no expert in photography and I have an inexpensive point and shoot camera. Take enough pictures and one is bound to turn out.

                The shop looks terrific and the truck is very well done. I love the details around your shop.

                What is the basis of the truck?

                  Thanks. The base model here is a truck from Roco Minitanks of the Russian Zis5. The tooling for the Zis was from American businessmen setting up production in 1930 Russia. It was the tooling for the Autocar Dispatch. They are exactly the same truck.

                    Chester,

                    Another nice job on this truck and your backdrop.

                    I want to thank you for including me in your thread, but I suppose there will be burglar's at my house now wanting my truck kits.

                      Beautiful. The new building interior is an excellent setting in which to photograph your excellent models, and the light streaming in through the window is what really sets up the scene!
