28 August 2009 : Today I proudly present Model Maniac Page 50 - Part A. In this Part, "Art Instructor" presents 4 new armors, some new figures and a new diorama. Starting from US M-10 from AFV Club and Russian KV-2 (1939-1940) from Don Association, followed by German Panzer Kampfwagen IV Ausf.J (Late) from Dragon, German 3.7cm Flak43 Auf.Selbstfahrlafette from Trumpeter, Russian Modern Tank Crew from Zvezda and German StuG Crew from VP, then topping it off with Diorama "May 1945" using ICM figure set.

And same as the last 3-4 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 49 - 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

Don Association was a British-Ukrainian association. As far as I know this is its only product which I bought several years ago for just $10. It's probably a rare kit now.
