Ever since I saw the movie Marwencol at the Sidewalk Film Festival last year I have been wanting to take pics of toys posed in life like scenarios. It's cool to kinda recreate a scene in my head or even my memory. Also this helps me learn the features of my camera in a controlled environment so that if I'm out and see a scene I want, I know how to set up the shot quickly. I decided to get out my Huey toys today and give it a go. The big one is a 21st Century Toys UH-1C gunship and is pretty big at 1/18 scale. I found a place in the yard where there was a nice patch of moss. The moss is a perfect scale model of grass for this scene. The regular grass looks like bushes in this scale. Check out the pics and let me know how I did.
Crewchief: CLEAR AND UNTIED!
Pilot: COMING HOT!
