Sure, Mario.
For the last two build reviews I made photos in raw format with Pentax K-x camera in a self-made lightbox from cardboard and whatman sheets (1 sec exposure time and f/32) . Light comes from 2 halogen lamps - 500W, I took them from a local supply store for 10 euro each.
After that I transfer images into Adobe Lightroom - very useful software, you can work with all set of images at a time, not 1-by-1 like in Photoshop. So, in Lightroom I just press "auto whitebalance", "autotone" and then export with an option "sharpen for web" on. I think it is quite easy to make images of unpainted model, but I am still very bad in shooting painted ones.

Mario Great review, thanks for such a detailed look at what looks like another good release from CH. The Stug was in fantastic condition, it looked like it had just come off the field of battle, not out of a mash were it had lay fo 60 years. Thanks again Geraint
