22 September 2008 : Today I proudly present Model Maniac Page 43 - Part D. In this Part "Art Instructor" presents five new armors and a new diorama as usual. Starting from BTR-70 from Dragon and M-978 Fuel Tanker from Italeri, followed by Vickers Armstrong 6 ton from Mirage, M4A4 from Dragon and Dicker Max from Trumpeter, then topping it off with diorama "Waffen SS" using Italeri's StuG-IV and Trumpeter's Waffen SS. And same as the last three dozen Parts, all pictures in this Part were taken using "time exposure" technique so as to achieve highest depth of field, i.e., using a tripod, setting shutter priority and selecting shutter speed that gives the highest f-stop (f19-f22) which is usually around 1/4 - 1 second, and setting self-timer for shutter release. Lighting is natural, pictures were taken outdoor under the shades during daytime. Pictures were scanned directly from film by the photo shop, written on to a CD and resized by me. As always, I hope you'll enjoy viewing!

I'd like to thank for all kind feedbacks, compliments and suggestions that we received concerning Page 43 - 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
