12 January 2009 : Today I proudly present Model Maniac Page 45 - Part D as the first page of the New Year 2009. In this Part, "Art Instructor" presents 5 new armors and a new diorama. Starting from LAV-AD from Trumpter and M4A3 76mm from Italeri, follewed by T-34/76 model 1943 from Revell, Autoblinda AB43 203(i) from Italeri and Flakpanzer 38(t) from Ark, then topping it off with Diorama "Counter Strike" using Tamiya's Wespe and Master Box's German Signal Personnel.
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. Anyway, this time the pictures seem to be somewhat overlighted. I'll try to do better the next time around. As always, I hope you'll enjoy viewing!
