The hump control building was demolished a few years ago.

Ian: great model building skills there!

I'm really interested in the building and bridge you are making but only one of the photos is in focus and lit well on the last page

It makes it really hard to see how you have constructed them and if there are any things that you could do to improve or if the techniques you are using are working

your dimensions look pretty good for the building and in the shot of the bridge that is in focus it does look to be coming on well.

What camera do you have, there must be a way to take more consistent photos?

How will you do your windows?


"Tonight, you men will sleep with your models. You will give your model a girl's name because this is the only p**sy you people are going to get. Your days of finger-banging ol' Mary Jane Rottencrotch through her perty pink panties are over! You're married to this piece, this weapon of iron and wood. And you will be faithful."

all together...
"This is my model. There are many like it but this one is mine. My model is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my model is useless. Without my model I am useless. I must build my model true. I must build straighter than my enemy, who is trying to outmodel me. I must outmodel him before he outmodels me. I will. Before God I swear this creed: my model and myself are defenders of my country, we are the masters of my enemy, we are the saviors of my life. So be it, until there is no enemy, but peace. Amen."

not having such a thing as a camera on my phone i'm not sure how they function, do they have a focus where you can press down part way to get it focus then all the way to take the shot? or is it all one action? I doubt they have a macro function either?

something for the xmas list :wink:
