Been dabbling with some of these plastics, not the best of pictures but here you go:

The pictures. Clearly they do not do justice to the quality of what we can see from your painting skills. If you can paint those striped overalls in that scale…respect!

Dead simple. You clearly have enough light. So close the camera shutter. The highest f number you can get. OK, longer exposure is needed, so just rest the camera on something and use a timer for shutter release, or buy the cheapest tripod, usually sold by street vendors, in any Italian or French city.

Most phone cameras do this sort of thing automatically, better than you can, if ASA and f numbers are complete mystery to you.

Great fun if you get the hang of it

I'm impressed.

Deadhead, thanks for the advice on the camera. Its a Canon Rebel T3i. Honestly, I just toggle the dial trying to find a setting that can give me a decent picture. I will have to figure out how to get the F-number up. Maybe I will try my iphone camera! Thanks again, really appreciated.

Ah, Tango will be putting these up as an original find soon…, we'll get a second look.

These are. Quite nice PAR, really good job. This period cals to me, especially with the new Perry 25s, (Oops, sorry "one true scale" aficionados!)

Thanks Dave, one day I will get back into 28mm and Perry stuff is amazing. In the remaining years I have of good eyesight my hope is to paint as many 6mm, 10mm and 15mm as possible. Unfortunately Lancashire released their rather nice range after I purchased these. One of the problems of going the 1/72 route is that I can't seem to find anything that I like that could pass for Ottoman/Mamaeluke infantry.
