You've certainly got your polishing skills mastered. I hope to emulate that some day.

I'm just using the skills I learnt from working in a car body shop, only on smaller cars, the process is the same, only on a model, even a small defect shows up, where as on a full size, you probably wouldn't notice it.

Very nice. I'm always torn between bench and tent shots as the bench seems to have better reflections yet the light tent seems to soften the light better so now I just take both.

The photo booth I have is made from white acrylic with two daylight balanced lamps, to me, they make the model look a lot more realistic
