My Dads' Model Boats

My Dad, who sadly passed away a few months ago, used to build model boats as a hobby.  Each one took him 18-24 months or so to complete, built from the shed at the bottom of the garden.  That same shed is now my product photography studio, so what better project to launch (pun intended) it with than photographing his boats.  I only had a few minutes to set up the studio for the first of the boats, a trawler as it was being given away to someone who works with special needs adults.

Before photographing the rest of the boats (there are at least 10 more), I need to buy a roll of paper to use as the background.  As you can see from the last photo, A3 sheets just aren't working well.
