2 November 2009 : Today I proudly present Model Maniac Page 50 - Part D. In this Part, "Art Instructor" presents 6 new armors and a new diorama. Starting from T-54 Egypt Army newly-released by SKIF, Sherman Vc Firefly from Dragon and Citroen Traction 11CV newly-released by Tamiya, followed by German Sd.Kfz.251/1 Ausf.B newly-released by Zvezda, PzBefWg Panther Ausf.G from Dragon and Flakpanzer 38(t) Sd.Kfz.140 "Gepard" also from Dragon, then topping it off with diorama "Desert Rat" using Tamiya's Special Air Service Jeep.

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 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!
