    Your photos are fine. Far better than mine. I gave up long ago in regards to being a great model photographer, or any kind of photographer, for that matter! Point n' shoot is where it's at for me!

    Yeah. It really doesn't matter how much money I spend on the camera. I still suck at MRR photography.
    I think it's the loose nut behind the camera.

    Outdoors, think indirect, reflected lighting. Nice work on the locomotive. At some point I will have #592 and #518 from the McClellan paint shops.

    Yea-I had it set up for out door light, but still had it set for Aperture Priority, which then over exposed the images.

    Very nice work! Are the stripes and lettering decals? I decided to try and make my own because couldn't find any pre-made ones.

    I am working on a 569 model. Actually a toy locomotive that will become a 'good enough for me' model of 569. I will start a thread on it.

    Thanks for taking the time to document your model.
