  1. The way I see this, if you spray any other shade of Alclad over what you now have, it will be that new shade. I don't think any of the underlying Polished Aluminum will show through. Is there a small panel on the underside that you could mask off and use a test bed? Maybe over spray a VERY light coat? Bob
  2. If you want it shiny, your next step is to leave it alone. Any other Alclad coat will kill the shine. In fact, any other coat of anything will kill the shine to varying degrees. Bob
  3. I'd be a little more than leery about that site!! That has red flags popping up all over the place!!!! I would not order anything from there.!!
  4. Were there any sharp angles involved? Like wing to fuselage, where air turbulence could be a factor. Was the surface of the model consistently smooth? Bob
  5. The model is superbly well done. Some of those photos could be mistaken for the real deal. The photography is exceptional!! It may be the best I've ever seen on this site. Would you share some of your set up and technique for that? Thanks, Bob
  6. I'm not familiar with Canon cameras. Do a youtube search. Bob
  7. The photos you are taking are good and mainly sharp and well in focus. In taking photos of models in progress on a work bench everything will not be in focus. Nor do you want it to be...like the paint bottles behind the model. One thing that I do not think has been discussed is number of focus points. If you leave that as the "factory setting" they will probably all be active. The camera will have a hard time deciding what to focus on. Change it to one focus point and place that on what you want to be sharpest. Depth of field will increase (somewhat in this case) with smaller f/ stops....f/11, f/16 and f/22. Bob
  8. Have you considered Ikea? I think there has been another thread here some time ago and they were recommended. Bob
  9. Maybe they just want a $700-$7000 name brand point and shoot !
  10. Maybe they just want a name brand, $700-$7000 point and shoot :)
  11. I had just about the same set-up back in the mid 70's with a Minolta SRT 101 I believe. I forget who made the bellows, but I ordered it one day from an outfit in LA and got it the next day in Syracuse NY! I might still have it around some where. It also came with a pistol grip. Bob
  12. Based on this series of photos, especially the last one, you have the necessary camera and lens for "close-up" photos. Other than a somewhat distracting background (and that may be part of the "build photos") there is nothing wrong with any of these!! Good work all around. Those photos are better than a lot of photos I've seen on this site. Bob
  13. Excepting Charlie's note above, they are trash, not recyclable.
  14. Based on that listing, I think what you bought was not two lenses, but rather add-on "lenses" for the 75-300 canon lens. It's like wide and and tele lenses for an iPhone. You need a true macro lens, small f/stop, tripod, and lots of light and practice. Based on your second photo above, you may have what you need. With sufficient light and a tripod and the lens you used (the 75-300?) You may be okay. That photo is quite sharp. Habu2 had some good advice. Bob
