Photography Equipment


  • I write reviews of some of the models I build, and thus require micro lens capacity

  • I also need to photograph the actual aircraft I am reviewing, to avoid copyrights issues raised by my UK publisher; these aircraft are usually found in museum in Canada, the US, and Europe; mercifully, I travelled to the relevant museums prior to Covid-19

  • I use photography to inspect my work, as some mistakes are difficult to see with a naked eye; I also send the recipients these photographs to document the building progress of their model(s)
