|This is a group of models from my 1:1250 collection. The camera was set to ASA 100, using a Canon 100 mm 1:2.8 USM macro lens at f22 and a looooong tripod exposure with AWB, fired off using the 40D's 10-second drive mode under fluorescent lighting over a sheet of letter size paper on my desk. I also shot another version of this using ASA 3200 and ƒ/5.6, but the depth of field was poor and quite a bit of noise was evident. On the plus side, I could shoot it hand-held that way.|
Fun fact: The destroyer model at the upper left was manufactured using "rapid prototyping" technology, essentially, it was literally printed layer by layer from a CAD file. The others in the image are all more typical cast metal models.
The smallest ship models here are under an inch long. Take a look at the large image size to see details, particularly on the destroyer and tanker. At 1/1250, one inch of model space is approximately 104 feet of ship space.
