Pretty realistic. You might want to fix the reversed lettering on the background tank.

I'm an avid model builder myself and I make very accurate and detailed models of aircraft, spacecraft and military models. Since this contest is more about Photoshop skills I won't be using my models in this contest. Most people may consider them toys but model makers don't. Using such a model does make believability in a real world setting easier. I'm not saying you're wrong, just that you didn't have to do any Photoshop work on the "toy" to make it look real.

I want to stress the point that this is NOT wrong or off theme! By definition a toy is "an object for a child to play with, typically a model or miniature replica of something: (as) a toy car." You did create a very good composition and the Photoshop work is quite well done. It's just my point of view regarding how the realism is achieved.

YOU SQUISHED THE LADY!!! (the original photo) Super cool. While I understand Spaceranger's dedication to model builders... (If you ever meet someone who put a ship in a bottle, hide all your sharp silverware if you say TOY) I think this chop is simply amazing.

I do believe a model can be considered a toy for this contest, as many models are available at toy stores... granted, if you've ever been in a hobby store or specialty Model shop the sophistication and "adult" attitude required to assemble them is mind boggling. Ask any one who has done a wooden model that requires an EXACTO knife to cut out the pieces...Yikes, I could never do it, I like my fingers too much. GREAT WORK AUTHOR.. and good luck
