3 October 2008 : Today I proudly present Model Maniac Page 44- Part A. In this Part, "Art Instructor" presents 4 new armors and 2 new dioramas. Starting from M13/40 from Zvezda and LVT-(A)1 from Revell, followed by T-34/85 from Italeri and German KV-2 754(r) from Trumpeter, then topping it off with Diorama "France 1944" using Tamiya's Panzer IV Ausf.J and Dragon's German Combat Unit and Diorama "Somewhere in Europe" using Master Box's figure set of the same name. And same as the last two 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), and setting self timer shutter release. Lighting is natural, pictures were taken outdoor under the shades during daytime. This time the light was so dim that I had to set maximum exposure of 2 seconds for most pictures. All 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 and compliments that we received concerning Page 43 - 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
