beautiful work mate. I love the lit engines and the grills over the top - they really look the part

Thank you! The best part is that the grills are the original parts! ;)

This was very enjoyable! :)

Also, I think taking photos of ones models also add an aspect that assure that one's model lives on, even though the physical model might not be around anymore, or for when the physical model no longer has its origina finish and integrity. Presumably, one could also take the opportunity (with photos) to either color correct, beautify touch up, or add an interesting background / theme-image, if that isn't too difficult/complicated.

Thank you!  :) You brought up some thoughtful things about models and photography.They do go hand in hand in fully presenting the finished model! I've completed some complex subjects over the years and was fortunate to have captured some decent exposures of them.Even though movie props are photographed for an end result,those miniatures may never see the light of day again.Just as what happened to the sets and miniatures after the completion of 2001.Seemed like a waste but the film stands the test of time because it's integrity was preserved.
