23 November 2009 : Today I proudly present Model Maniac Page 51 - Part A. In this Part "Art Instructor" presents 6 new armors and a new diorama. Starting from 3 modern armors namely M2A2 'Bradley' from Tamiya, M998 Cargo Truck from Academy and British Challenger II from Trumpeter, followed by Ba-20 Russian Armored Car from Ark, Sd.Kfz.7/2 3.7cm Flak37 from Tamiya and Tiger I Late Production w/ Zimmerit from Dragon, then topping it off with Diorama "German Field Artillery" using Dragon's Pak40 w/ Fallschirmjager.

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 50 - 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
