Peter Allen (flitzer) is here with his first article on Armorama. He's put together a handy little feature on how to take a picture of your completed model and superimpose it on a background to create a natural looking scene.

Creating A Digital Montage For Your Models

Thanks for the submission Peter.

Hi Treadhead,
I'm no expert. I just had a go until I got decent results. If you fancy having a go and need any help, I'm more than happy to share what (little) I know.
It could be fun...Imagine yourself atop of your latest tank for instance.
Best wishes.
Peter

Hi all.
as I mentioned to treadhead, if anyone has a go and gets stuck, I'd be happy to help out if I can.
To date I have only done jets, so I might try one with props just to see how it turns out.
Keep you posted.
Cheers
Peter
