29 June 2009 : Today I proudly present Model Maniac Page 48 - Part C. In this Part "Art Instructor" presents 5 armors and a figure but no diorama for a change which he once asked for. He also has been requested by two modelers to build armors in a different style, not his usual heavily worn and weathered. So he built all armors in this page differently, i.e., lightly weathered, for this page only. After this he'll resume his trademark style. ;-)

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 48 - 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

I finished taking pictures just in time before the natural light went out.
