Et tu Brute …us
Jaz- you do such a great job of modeling and creating scenes that I am constantly amazed at your pictures.My aim is to always fool you, if only for a second, to this end I use the best models I can,and if I know certain models will help the scene but scream model I place them, to hide any elements scream out, hiding base stands, or placing far enough backwards or forwards against the focus point to blur them, so they can be mistaken, I turn faces to the side or away if really bad, these sheep benefit, as does the pilot

at this distance the base on top of the ballast is not too obvious

closer the painting detail is more focused showing all the paint details so screams model, the base at least is hidden in the ballast

I do not like photoshopping but I bit the bullet and did it here to see if it improved the photo, the model is still to close though and my paint work clearly shows up the lack of fine detail

this one slightly further back, again photoshopped to remove the figure base, but now the detail is less obvious, the vehicles were placed to hide the fact the red arrow jet is on a base as well. I should fine tune the Red Cross on the ⛑ helmet, yes white on red not red on white
edit= I think the white note pad squares need lifting,ithink I have placed them on the knees not the thighs.When I have the paint to hand this will be an easy fix.
