Photocomp Entries

Recommended Posts

They are awesome Manic.

 

What type of editing program do you have?

 

I don't know which one is my favorite but for orginality the MRRC Toyota one wins hands down. I love it!!!

 

They are going to be hard to beat.

 

Well done Manic.

 

Regards

 

Dave

Thanks Dave, I had a stack of fun playing around with the photo editor which BTW is Photoshop 7. I'm not sure how it stacks up to Corel Draw but it's pretty easy to use as I did all the submitted image enhancements in 3 hours.

 

Cheers Manic :o

Nice bike pic Jamie, looks like a little extra down-force on that bike. Are you still a big fan of the bikes? hmcsat and I had so much trouble getting them to go around the track we threw in the towel. Any improvements post the weights?

 

Cheers Manic :rolleyes:

Hi Matt,

 

At the time of that pic (ages ago) I had added the extra magnet and the bikes hung on much better around the track, but the scraping noise as they went around and the lack of leaning made them look and sound annoying so that one went on Ebay and I just kept a couple of them as shelf queens. I'm not sure how the bikes went with the heavier replacement slide base that Scalextric later supplied the bikes with as I never tried them.

yes i see what you must think, kind of like the 50's and 60's when spectators took their lives in their own hands when they went to a race; at lemans i think they set a record for dead spectators when a car landed in the grand stands. :( appearences can be decieving my track is tiny in comparision to most of my colleagues and cars dont develop enough speed to get airborne into the scenery except by the tech center and it pretty well covered now by wine barrier barrells. :D

Nice photo Mike, love the lights. I wouldn't be worried about being late as it looks like the photo comp will continue on...........

 

Regarding the Lola, can you comment regarding its performance relative to the Scalextric Mustangs yet?

 

Cheers Manic :lol:

Hey Matt,

I still think the Lola has the edge over a Camaro, it's just as fast, has a great magnet and is lower to the ground, so handles better and has less tendency to 'let go'. I haven't raced them side by side though, but the ground clearance on the Lola is very low, so with nicely trued tyres lowering it a bit, kicking in even more magnet, I just can't see how it wouldn't edge the Trans Ams, of any variety.

 

The new liveried Lola is great, and on a par with my favourite other Lola - by that, I mean it's not the dog that my Banana Joe's livery was... :lol:

 

Tough call isn't it, in terms of getting the crown back... Corvette, Camaro or Lola B)

Well, if it's still open, I'll post another entry into the 'original untouched' category - another shot of the backmarkers at the 2004 le Mans... :lol:

Dawn beckons, and they're still running - even if not on the lead lap.

Hi Guy's,

 

Now let's put this comp to an end.

Sorry for missing so long but Work, Family, Friends and life in general can throw you a few twists some times, ya gotta move on though.

 

Before I go one, I'd just like to say Thankyou to my good buddy Manic.

I dumped a bit on his plate and he took it all in, Thanks mate.

 

I really wanted to enter a few pics too but never got the time.

Here is one I hope you all enjoy.

Now it may look a little farmiliar :(

Thanks again Manic, this gift will be the centre piece of my race room in the new house.

 

 

 

OK now where do we vote!
