24 August 2010 : Today I proudly present Model Maniac Page 55 - Part B. In this Part "Art Instructor" presents three new armors, a new howitzer, a new motorcycle and two new dioramas. Starting from Russian BRDM-3 from Dragon and Hummer with M242 Bushmaster from Tamiya, followed by M38 A1C Recoilless Rifle from AFV Club, IJA 28cm Howitzer (Coast Guard) from Pit Road and Zundapp KS750 with Sidecar from GreatWall (LionRoar), then topping it off with two dioramas, namely "Women At War" using Master Box's Women At War : US Navy WAVES and Diorama "Ukraine, Summer 1943" using Dragon's Panzer Kampfwagen IV Ausf.F2 and Dragon's German Infantry (Ukraine 1943).

And same as the last 4-5 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 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 55 - Part A. 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
