F7A Santa Fe - Picture Gallery

Herewith pictures of the end result. There may be some differences in color due to various moments of the day the pictures were taken and the occasional help of artificial light. My studio is simple, just cleared my desk and put up a background picture. A 1:48 scale mini-me is useful to show the size of the F7A. It required a big step to enter the machine!

And finally Sir Nigel Gresley also joined the party .


Cheers,
Erik

Thank you all for your reactions! The F7A is displayed in my home and has already drawn quite a few admirers. It is indeed an eye-catching model.

Cheers,
Erik

A superb pair of model locomotives and a very effective photographing technique.
