1 September 2010 : Today I proudly present Model Maniac Page 55 - Part C. In this Part "Joh" presents 3 new busts and 8 new mini-dioramas. Starting from French Heavy Cavalry (1815), U.S. Pilot WWI and U.S. Tank Crew busts, followed by Dioramas "Soviet Spetnaz (Kandahar 1985)", "German Infantry (East Prussia 1945)", "British Paratroopers (Holland 1944)" and "US Army Anti-Tank Teams (Guam 1944 & Berlin 1945)", then finishing off with Dioramas "Panzergrenadiers Lehr Divison (Normandy 1944)", "German Naval Troops (Dieppe 1942)", "Stukas im Anflug! (Stalingrad, Summer 1942)" and "Russian Special Force (South Ossetia 2008)".

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 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 55 - 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
