7 June 2010 : Today I proudly present Model Maniac Page 53 - Part D. In this Part, "Art Instructor" presents 5 new armors, a new figure and a new diorama. Starting from T-54B newly-released from SKIF and British Armoured Car newly-released from Roden, followed by BM-13-16N newly-released from ICM, Jager, Fallschirmjager Battalion 500 1:16 from Dragon, R-12 German Heavy Motorcycle from Zvezda and German 3cm Flakpanzer IV "Kugelblitz" from Dragon, then topping it off with Diorama "Who's That?!" using Master Box's newly-released 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 53 - Part C. They are very encouraging, and they inspire us to keep on producing quality models and dioramas and showing finest quality pictures. Comments and suggestions are welcome in my Model Maniac Forum
