8 October 2010 : Today I proudly present Model Maniac Page 56 - Part A. In this Part "Art Instructor" presents several military models as usual. Starting from Talon Robots from AFV Club and British 3/4 ton Ambulance Rover 7, followed by B1 bis - French Battle Tank & Sturmpanzer IV Brummbar Sd.Kfz.166 from Tamiya, Panzerkampfwagen VI Tiger I Ausf.E Late from Italeri and Panzerfahre Gepanzer Landwasserschlepper Prototype Nr.1 from Dragon, then topping it off with Diorama "Morocco 1943" using Tamiya's Quad Gun Tractor and Master Box's Commonwealth AFV Crew.

This is the second Part that I switch to digital photography. After reading all the camera's instruction manual, I still don't know how to set it to take "time exposure" pictures. But I think most pictures turn out well and that I've done better than the first Part. No cropping or editing of any kind has been done to any picture, just resizing. As always, I hope you all enjoy viewing!

I'd like to thank for all kind feedbacks and compliments that we received concerning Page 55 - 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
