Looking at your first picture, I thought that someone took a picture of the real aircraft passing above their home!!

But nice pictures you took of your Qantas models..

Very nice ! Almost real.

We have to check the flap setting to discover that it is a model : landing gear down and flaps zero is not a normal configuration.

QANTAS fans will be very happy with this.

Agentx20 could you please do a set of pictures similar but using a classic DC-10-30? That would be awesome!

Awesome photos! After looking at the first couple shots I thought these pictures were of the real aircraft.

These models really do look great!

Please note, I'm viewing photos at home on a laptop with a small screen, so smaller details are difficult for me to see. Thanks for your understanding.

May I ask how you do these magnificent photos? Personally, I find very hard to edit this kind of pictures.

THUMBS UP!

You may ask but being a Secret Agent, I would have to kill you..

It really is nothing more than a model perched on a stick in front of a camera..

The stick was in fact a wooden dowel that came from a pair of madams shoes.

BUT (for me)

A gust of wind can upset matters - it is a little precarious - the model could fall the 2 plus metres to the ground.. The ground is lawn... which brings on the second problem...

Any bits that fall off - its far worse than hunting through carpet..

Camera is operated by a cable release...

50 plus photos are taken of each model

Propellers are spun either by hand, a blow.... or hair dryer...

Some days are good ... some not so...



..........it would help of course of the old lady next door would trim her bush!!..

.....and from that scenario, we see Mrs Agent coming home after a hard days shopping....



Sometimes you are lucky as they look 'right'... in fact a grey sky can make them look more realistic..



Sometimes not so....



Next property will have to take so many more things into account..!!!! ... something like a roof terrace would be ideal..



Editing is a different subject, I use Micrografx Picture Publisher which comes from 1987 and I use version 7, (1997 - last century!!) later versions are a nightmare..

They were then taken over by Corel whose latest is Paintshop Pro 7, I have tried to use, as I have Adobe, but it is to me like a different language and I just cannot even 'get started', when it comes to editing.

Time though is running out as the software is only 32 bit and gets more unstable as we get further versions of Windows etc... I have thought of buying an old PC, disconnecting it from the net to just use it for Photo editing but again the program is starting to struggle with images over about 16MP..and that's on JPEG.

When I retire I might have the time to start with Adobe..
