2 December 2008 : Today I proudly present Model Maniac Page 45 - Part B. In this Part "Art Instructor" presents 4 new armors, 3 bust figures and a diorama. Starting from the M706 Commando Armored Car in Vietnam from Hobby Boss, M998 Hummer from Esci and GAZ-66 from Eastern Express, followed by Adolf Hitler bust, Saddam Hussein bust and Norman Schwarzkopf bust (all origin unknown and not a picture was provided - AI has to search for their pictures from the Net at his brother's house), then topping it off with the Sd.Kfz.251/7 Ausf.D from Dragon and a diorama "German Invasion - France 1940" using Master Box's Kleiner Panzerbefehlswagen KLA1 + Dragon's Germania Regiment (Gen2). 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 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 45 - Part A. They are very encouraging, and they inspire us to keep on producing quality models and dioramas and showing finest quality pictures. Comments and suggestions are welcome in my Model Maniac Forum
