Dippy's latest collection. Yet to reach Bombay though.

Dippy, I've tried a different lighting for your duo-tone silver baby. Problem with silver colour (especially for model cars) is they look very flat with regular lighting. I had to mask out acrylic with black paper strips to get this. Front light is bounced from white papers and mirror.

Rudra I am speechless

That doesnt even look like a model. It seems like a real E parked in a showroom . I bow to you. What effects have you used in Photoshop?

Do you have a shot of the rear?

Not as yet. Need to find some time to do that. In fact I want to do that. Will do before this car leaves Bangalore for Bombay.

Default Autofest City News - August 2009

Dear Patrons, friends and well-wishers,

We begin a new series this month – Inventions and Innovations. Back in the 19th century transportation was in its infancy and travel was largely limited as rapid transportation was almost non-existant. Then came along great inventors who laid the very foundation for various modes of transport that provided a platform for further innovation and improvement over generations.

Autofest City is fortunate to have authentic scale replicas of all the important firsts in the world in transportation history. Here is the link to our newsletter celebrating the dawn of a great new era in transportation: V8-I8 Aug 2009.pdf - File Shared from Box.net - Free Online File Storage

Acting on feedback from many friends who always keep writing in we added a new page to our website at webs.com. This page titled ‘This Month In Closeup’ will feature exhaustive photographs of a highly-detailed scale model at Autofest City each month. Please use the following link to go directly to the page:
This Month In Close-up

Let’s go back in time.

Best regards,
Neil D’Costa
Co-founder – Autofest City

@ flotsam :good collection

@ Rudra Sen:You Cannon guy is rocking.It is amazing to see the play of light and shadow like a sweet dream.I think you have not used photoshop for it except for cropping,developing to JPEG image from RAW.I am waiting to see the back of the car with same effect.

@ Dippy :Wounderful model .I have no word to say.I will post my other shots soon.

@SuperSelect: thats true superselect,the main problem is getting fine tools in India.

@dhrishikesh :waiting for the best of you to see.

@Neil : I have no superlatives to say you.You are a proud of our country.
