22 December 2008 : Today I proudly present Model Maniac Page 45 - Part C, just in time to celebrate Christmas and the coming New Year 2009. In this Part, "Art Instructor" presents 4 new armors and a new diorama. Starting from M270 MLRS from Dragon w/ PE upgrade set from Voyager and LAV-150 APC from Hobby Boss, followed by KV-2 from Trumpeter w/ PE upgrade set from Eduard and Universal Carrier MkII w/ Flak 38 from Tamiya w/field conversion by A.I. and topping it off with Diorama "German Aggression" using Tamiya's Sd.Kfz.251/1 Ausf.D + Dragon's German Sturmpioniers, plus a bonus diorama "Hey! What's going on?" from "Totenkopf". 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), 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 45 - Part B. They are very encouraging, and they inspire us to keep on producing quality models & dioramas and showing finest quality pictures. Comments and suggestions are welcome in my Model Maniac Forum

Bonus Diorama
201 - 220 : Diorama "Hey! What's going on?" by "Totenkopf"
A few months earlier I bought this dio in support of the builder who built and showed it in "Hobby Model" (a local hobby magazine, now defunct) years ago. He scrathbuilt the base, the house's ruins, the barbwires. etc. He also added details to many parts of both vehicles as you can see by yourself.
