It seems everyone likes the collage photos so I'm making some with the few Russians I have. It takes a while and I only finished 2 today. I have 4 more I'll try to finish tomorrow.

Very nice classics in superb shape! Thanks for sharing. I would like to see one of your pics in your collage a little more head on.
you mean directly over the dial? I have a simple point&shoot and its hard to get a photo without reflecting the camera. I use a simple lightbox but these are the best angles for me. I guess you noticed the overhead shots of the backs, no reflection to deal with there.
Good thing I only did 2 collages. I looked at the Komandirskie versions catalogue that is in the articles section and realized what a true collage it. Last time I made one was in 7th grade so I forgot how they actually look. Will work on them and post in the coming days
What software are you using? If you're not using it I would recommend Picassa. It's free and really easy to use which is why I use it for all my photo work...has to be easy (I own light room, & photoshop elements and never use them).

Hope you didn't look at NHT's collages! That's a quantum leap beyond what most of us can do. At least shows what's possible.
I'm using GIMP. I mainly use Linux and Picasa is not available for it. Google stopped its development. Now that I got the hang of collages with GIMP it will be much faster to do. Need some more photos though.

I guess it was NHT's images but his photos are superior quality anyway.
While I can't challenge NHT, here is my real collage attempt with my Paketa World Timer. The others may take more time to put up since I need a case-opener.

Thanks for the tips guys. I feel bad that I didn't give you all an idea of what I have so far. I thought it wouldn't be so hard to make collages. The collages will come out great but they take time. So here are the rest:
