12 November 2007 : Three days after the 9th Year Birthday Anniversary of this Web site, today I proudly present Model Maniac Page 39 - Part A. In this Part, "Art Instructor" presents four new armors and two new dioramas. Starting from Diorama "Battle of Hue 1968" using Hobby Fan's 'U.S. Marines Battle of Hue 1968', followed by Italeri's DUKW with 105mm Howitzer, Mirage's Vickers-Armstrong '6 ton', Master Box's Panzer I Ausf.A Ambulance and Trumpeter's German Bruckenleger IV b, then topping it off with Diorama "The Winter War" using Dragon's Panther D (Kursk 1943) + Tri Star's German Panzergrenadiers Vol.2.
And same as the last dozen Parts, all pictures in this Part were taken using "time exposure" technique so as to achieve highest depth of field. As always, I hope you'll enjoy viewing!
I'd like to thank for all kind feedbacks and compliments that we received concerning Page 38 - Part D. They are very encouraging and they inspire us to keep producing quality models & dioramas and showing finest quality pictures. Comments and suggestions are welcome in my Model Maniac Forum
