    It's weird to see pics of a camera that are out of focus.. Cool Build though.. It could be a cool idea to model some really old camera's too..

    I am always amazed at how real camera models look. There are lots of them available on the NET.

    You could actually make it into an operating pinhole camera if you had the desire to do so. Pinhole photography is a blast!

    Its Done!!!

    Okies people its finished:mrgreen:

    Lense was a bit tricky...

    It was all built more or less as is,the only thing ive done is coloured a few edges with pen to try to hide the white,some of the parts were not used,this was because of the thickness of card used.

    Well thats about it really...

    Oh wait a minute you want pics i suppose....

    Here ya go ...... enjoy!
