12 May 2010 : Today I proudly present Model Maniac Page 53 - Part C. In this Part "Art Instructor" presents a new figure, a new motorcycle, four new armors and a new diorama. Starting from Soviet Tank Crew 1:16 Vol.2 from Trumpeter and US WWII Motorcycle WLA from Mini Art, followed by Russian BM-13 "Stalingorgel"/"Katiusha" from Revell, L4500R Maultier German Heavy Halftrack, StuG III Ausf.B and StuG III Ausf.F from Dragon, then topping it off with diorama "GD Division" using Dragon's Sd.Kfz.251 Ausf.C w/ GD Division figures.

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 53 - 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
