5 July 2010 : Today I proudly present Model Maniac Page 54 - Part C. In this Part "Art Instructor" presents 4 new armors, 3 busts, a figure set of six 1:32 figures , and a new diorama. Starting from 122 SpH 74 Finnish Self-Propelling Howitzer newly-released by SKIF and MTLB-MA also from SKIF, followed by BA-64B Soviet Armoured Car w/ Crew newly-released by Mini Art, 3 figure busts of US & German Soldiers (scale around 1:9), Famous Pilots of WWII 1:32 newly-released by Master Box, then topping it off with Einheitsdiesel Kfz.61 Femsprechbatriebskraftwagen newly-released by IBG and Diorama "German Soldiers At Rest" using Mini Art's German Soldiers At Rest + Mini Art's Village Accessories and Mini Art's Farm Cart. "Art Instructor" finished all nine pieces (6 famous pilots count as one) in just two weeks despite having to work as an art instructor in a private school on weekdays.

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 54 - 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
