29 January 2009 : Today I proudly present Model Maniac Page 46- Part A. In this Part, "Art Instructor" presents 5 new armors and a new diorama. Starting from T-72 M1 from Mini Hobby and M998 from Italeri, followed by LVT(A)2 "Saipan" from Italeri, Panzer II A/B/C from Tamiya and Flakpanzer "Ostwind" from Italeri, then topping it off with diorama "Jerry's Command" using Tamiya's M16 + Italeri's 1/4t 4x4 truck + Mini Art's US Jeep Crew & MP.
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 shutter release. Lighting is natural, pictures were taken outdoor under the shades during daytime. 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 45 - 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
