25 December 2009 : Today I proudly present Model Maniac Page 51 - Part C, just in time to celebrate Christmas and New Year. I wish all of you who read this page A Very Happy & Phosphorous New Year 2010. In this Part "Art Instructor" presents 5 new armors and a new diorama. Starting from M151 A1 from Academy, M-51 ISherman from Dragon and 2S1 122mm Self-Propelled Howitzer from SKIF, followed by German Sturmtiger from Tamiya and German 88mm Flak37 mit Behelfslafette from Dragon, then topping it off with diorama "Europe 1944" using Dragon's Sd.Kfz.251/22 Ausf.D w/ inbox figure set and an extra 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 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 51 - 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
