27 July 2010 : Today I proudly present Model Maniac Page 55 - Part A. In this Part there are a new armor and three new warships. Starting from Ural 4320 6x6 Truck with Field Gun from Alanger, followed by USS Cole DDG-67 1:350 and JMSDF DDG-174 Kirishima 1:350 from Trumpeter, then topping it off with Japanese Navy Submarine I-58 1:350 from AFV Club.
And same as the last 40-50 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 54 - 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
