I’m continuing to play with my backdrops. Here are a few more test photos.
I realized I should probably jot this down for anyone looking to model winter forests.
Many years ago I owned a Volvo 240DL wagon. It was a great car. Eventually, the expected costs of running it caught up with it, and I ended up trading it in for a newer one. When I discovered a model of the car on Shapeways, I had to have one.
