    Love these BI-Directional Grips (Citadel)

    Greetings, huge fan, new member, and love this style of grip. Sure would like to see more of these style grips in the future.

    Here are a couple new Citadel(s) I added to my collection.

    Welcome to the forum! What beautiful pictures - do you have a special lighting setup to do this? I also like the reflection in the surface - is that a black glass table or something?

    Automatics are not allowed in Singapore so I shall have to enjoy this model vicariously
    Regards,

    Bruno, Thank you much, glad you like, and I appreciate the post.

    Those were shot, using one off-camera strobe, with a 24x36 softbox. Yes, black marble slate, with black backdrop to control background and reflection from walls. I then added a black transparent layer over the reflection in PS CS4 to tone it down a bit. I thought this layout looked pretty good, thanks for your feedback!

    Just added a super clean BNIB BI-Fold to my collection this weekend. Love it!. Now looking for the 92mm Satin, a 83mm BKP, and both the plain edge Black and Satin Embassy's.

    Why Am I always after the discontinued S^%#, I have no idea. Also picked up a one of the newer Szabo's this weekend at a show. My Citadel is now tucked away, and I can't put down this new folder. Love big folder blades..........
