oil tank car at the Wilmington California refinery on a bright sunny morning. The MP15 is from Athearn. The track is Atlas code 83. The large oil tank on the right is a Walthers kit with a MicroMark custom decal. Other scenery is scratch built. The backdrop is a series of photos made into a 4 foot wide diorama. The entire 4 foot by 2 foot board was shot in natural sunlight.

With both of these photos it is the background that really makes it look so good. I would be interested in a session, thread, or how to of how you did them. All the ones I have done there is something that is either too big for as far away as it is supposed to be, or too small for as close as it looks.
