27 December 2005 : Today I proudly present Model Maniac Page 27 - Part D just in time to celebrate the coming of 2006. In this Part "Art Instructor" presents four new armors and
two new dioramas - most of which are newly-released kits. These are SAM-6 and LAV-25 from
Trumpeter, T-64 BW from SKIF, Bergepanzer Tiger (P) from Dragon's, Diorama "The Flak" using Dragon's 88 mm Flak 36 w/ Flak Artillery Crew, and Diorama "Russian Offensive" using Trumpeter's KV-1 model 1942 Heavy Cast Turret Tank + Dragon's Russian Tank Crew + MiniArt's Hungarian City Building.
As always, I hope you'll enjoy viewing!.
I'd like to thank for all kind feedbacks and compliments that we received concerning Page 27 - Part C. They are encouraging indeed!, and they inspire us to keep on producing quality models & dioramas and showing finest quality pictures possible. Comments and suggestions are welcome in my
Model Maniac Forum
136 - 143 : Diorama "The Flak" using Dragon's 88 mm Flak 36 w/ Flak Artillery Crew
144 - 152 : Diorama "Russian Offensive" using Trumpeter's KV-1 model 1942 Heavy Cast Turret Tank + Dragon's Russian Tank Crew + MiniArt's Hungarian City Building. The building you see here is not plastic but a resin copy casted by "Art Instructor". In so doing, the building
can be reproduced again when wanted.
Counter : With the introduction of this Part, the total number of pictures of all Pages = 3,906
I think this will be the last Part and the last Page that I'll present
using conventional SLR camera. For future Pages, I'll use a digital camera which is much more powerful in zooming and closing-up (36-432mm compared to SLR's 35-70mm), plus I can take more pictures and can upload them faster too. No film processing, printing and scanning is required.
PS. A digital version of this Part has been available two days earlier, if you haven't seen it, here's the link :
