In the 90's i bought a Nikon 6006 with a 35-135 zoom with macro, used 2" ring and it would fill the screen with a quarter.

Did not know enough about photog so let set, 3 yrs ago up graded to a Nikon D80 and last yr spent a few months building a 12' track & trolly with 2 swinging 3' arms.

One holds the softbox light, the other 3 54" wide paper back drop rolls , white - black - color?.

Had all the parts polished now some will anodized and strart to put all the pcs togerther, i build 1/16" scale car models that are custom painted with candys & pearls- scollops - flames - gold leaf - and pinstriping.

Now i can get serious about getting some neat shots of the models, and use the macro for the detail stuff.

Not enough time to get it all done and at 71' i run out of gas myself, just keep plugging away each day.
