vivekji05: Nice macro.I love them.Thank you very much for posting them for me.

I made the guess your camera is not Canon from absence of Cannon's signature green-blue colour.But definitely that does neither show your effort nor skill less.

Very nice and unique idea of shooting on a running treadmill.You can try such shot with any Red Ferrari model (now or in future);because the logo on the rim will create a nice effect.

100/100 for your diecast photography from my side.

@vivek, those treadmill shots are super cool. never seen that kind before.

In the meanwhile, I just realized I've got the same M1N1 too!! also realized I've got the same Porsche also. !! thats a lot of coincidence for the day eh.

I got the porsche as a gift from Overdrive magazine for the subscription. is that how you got yours?

The Nissan GTR 1:24. Could have added a back ground, but decided against it.

Thanks Rudra. I thought about having the stripes but the problem I faced was the car weaving from side to side and hitting the edges. I had to make corrections in between shots just to make them stay in the centre line. These 1:24s do come with steering that never points straight.

My 1:18 collection is not that great. Just the four models (Gallardo, Murcielago, H2 and RR sport) It's not easy getting these 1:18 models and I have a huge parking problem.

Thanks buddy. I was looking for an F430 coupe/spyder for sometime. Red calipers would look super hot in action, won't they?

Yes, I too got mine from Overdrive subscription and is my first 1:24 scale model. It was my grandfather''s gift, that subscription.

Thanks for the welcome everyone, They didn’t have anything more exiting apart from the GtR in this price range. I am in Bangalore this week and will have a look at their outlet in forum for something more exiting. Any other places in Bangalore which stock a good collection.

phenomenal idea to shoot these cars on a treadmill!! creates an amazingly life-like impression of movement and dynamism in the images!
excellent result too.

What you have my friend seems to be QUALITY, not Quantity!
That Bentley looks wonderful - the choice of BRG for the colour seems rather apt! I wish I could get one too!
