Slammed Diecast
« on: 13 April 2014, 12:19 »
Hi all,

Just thought I'd share some of my photos of my modified 1:18 scale VW diecast models.  All the models are Otto-models, which are excellent quality resin models.  I've made various mods, such as new wheels, exhausts, decals and lowering.

Their bigger brother is watching out for them in the background  :wink:.
Photos taken using a Canon EOS 600D, with either a Canon EF 50mm F1.8 II or Sigma 10-20mm F3.5 EX DC lenses

Hope you like...

 :smiley: not that I noticed.  I went to the local school car park while it was quiet on Sunday morning.

Cool website. I did try a few shots trying to match the scale of model to real car, but it was too far away and lost the detail.

 :huh:

And that would result in fewer funny looks from people?

They're very nice little toy cars.  Are they your son's?
Just because you're offended doesn't make you right.
