Welcome on Henk's website

find all about fiNe-scale modelling
in a scale of 1 : 160


photo section under development

This section will hopefully become filled with some sparkling photos of fiNe-scale models.


This photo demonstrates the landscape possibilities of N-gauge. This is a simple landscape module that oozes summer atmosphere. Shot taken in the garden and filled in with a suitable bit of background from Denmark and some haze added.

Results of Combine ZM and a direct USB link between a Nikon D200 camera and computer. The next 4 photos are the results of combining between 12-18 photos with manual focus changed from back to front. Aperture about F14, 2.5 s, indirect lighting by 300 W halogen lamp.


same technique.



same technique.


The maximum length of the USB cable should be less then 5 m, that turned out to be too short for this photo. The small artifacts are an indirect result of not having a direct visual control as one photos was not ideal.
