26 March 2009 : Today I proudly present Model Maniac Page 46 - Part C. In this Part, "Art Instructor" presents 5 new armors and a new diorama. Starting from M151 A1 w/ 105mm Recoilless Gun from Academy and ZSU-23-4M Air Defense System from Dragon, followed by the Merkava Mk.IV newly released from Academy, M7 Priest from Italeri and ABM 41/42 w/ 47/32 AT Gun also from Italeri, then topped it off with Diorama "Grasshopper in the Field" using Dragon's Heuschrecke IVb 'Grasshopper' + Master Box's German Tank Repairmen + VP's German Tank Crew At Rest. 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 46 - 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

Welcome 3 new warships to my collection!

Would you buy the kits you want, build them the best you can, and then sell them off at about one fifth of the prices you bought? Probably not! This is a rare case of Khun Hong and I'm very lucky to be the buyer! The reason that Khun Hong sold is about storage space. He sold me the King George V 1:350 for just $8, the type VIIC 1:72 submarine for just $16, and the Gato class submarine 1:72 for just $19! What a deal! He kindly delivered them to my house yesterday. After some dusting, they now reside in my showroom.

Counter : With the introduction of this Part, the total number of pictures of all Pages = 6,756
