Nice effects.  It really looks well used, but not abused.  That light box really enhances the photos too.   8)

Yes, I realized that I can't make everything look like it was found at the bottom of the ocean. ;D

Very nice Tom.  Any particular technique, or just a lighter touch with the same techniques?

Thx,
Ed N.

Your next challenge is to repaint the roof and do something about the way to perfectly applied 'overspray' (for lack of a better term... I can't seem to condense 'looks like a stencil was applied to the roof and then it was painted' inot a few words)

...yes, my only complaint about the Athearn cars.

Again, very nice Tom. I do have a question for you: What is the background you use to take your photos?

I purchased a bunch of light tents, lights, and risers from Tabletop Studio a few months back.  This one is a black acrylic riser.  I think it looks great, but difficult to take a photo without dust and fuzz needing to be photoshopped out.

There is a fluid available that makes acrylic anti-static. This helps against the dust.
