Here is a little help from ANOTHER Martin:

Good start on your photography there Guy, but you might want to remove the glass before you try to take pictures of you models with a flash. Or at least put the models in a place away from the glass enclosure for the taking of the pictures.

The reflected flash causes the picture to come out more blueish than it should be. Never use a flash while photographing something in a glass enclosure.

EXACTLY. Go to a crafts store and get a few different color sheets of poster board. I have black and white. It doesn't reflect, and allows you to phtograph your models in whatever pose you want without any background except the color of the poster board.



An example - My Lunar Models Robby
