Re: Ray's TAS shuttlecraft...
Here's a glimpse of how I did my photomanip. I put the model in a simple scene approximating the ground colour and sky. I did this to get the right kind of colour reflections on the hull. Then it was relatively easy to get the model to blend into the more natural looking background when put into the landscape. I also tried to approximate the same direction of shadows.
