12 February 2007 : Today I proudly present Model Maniac Page 32 - Part D. In this Part I introduce another modeler named "Tuk"
who is Art Instructor's elder brother. He presents two warships namely U.S.S. Defiance Patrol Gun Boat 1:131 from Revell
and Russian Wasp II Class Missile Boat from Kitech, and a Fallschirmjager 1:16 from Dragon. After that "Joh" presents a
Panzergrenadiers 1:16 from Dragon and three dioramas. With the exception of two 1:16 figures, the pictures of the remaining items
were taken using "time exposure technique", i.e., using a tripod, long exposure (1/4 to 1/2 second at f19 - f22), and self-timer
shutter release. This technique has proved to give all pictures better depth of field than my conventional hispeed (1/60 sec) bright-lighted pictures.
As always, I hope you'll enjoy viewing!.
I'd like to thank for all kind feedbacks and compliments that we received concerning Page 32 - Part C.
They are very encouraging! 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
