22 November 2010 : Today I proudly present Model Maniac Page 57 - Part B. In this Part, "Art Instructor" presents 8 new pieces of work covering tank, truck, motorcycle, artillery, figure and diorama. I just bought 4 of these (Ontos, MAZ-537, DUKW, and Pz.Kpfw.IV) at half price on 31 October, gave them to "Art Instructor" on 2 November along with other 4 pieces. He delivered them all on 21 November. Today they're available on the Net already. They took such a short time from the hobby shop to my showroom. What I need is another showroom!

I tried using my 4-years-old old digital camera (Canon Powershot S2 IS) for a change, thinking that it has bigger lenses, might render sharper images. But after 50+ shots, it warned of battery depletion. It could take only the first four pieces in this Part, for the remaining four I had to use my new digital camera (GE A1250) to complete the job. You can compare image quality between the two cameras. Which one is better?. 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 57 - Part A (introduced yesterday). 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
