9 January 2011 : Today I proudly present Model Maniac Page 58 - Part A as the first page for the Year 2011. In this Part "Art Instructor" presents 6 new armors and a new diorama. Starting from LAV III TUA from Trumpeter and M5A1 from Tamiya, followed by Zundapp K-800 w/ Steib Side Car Nr.28 from Vulcan, German s.10cm Kanone 18 from Dragon, Sd.Kfz.171 Panther Ausf.D from Dragon with Panzer Grenadiers Vol.2 from Tri Star and German E-75 Super Heavy Tank from Trumpeter, then topping it off with Diorama "Horse Drawn Breda" using Italeri's Horse Drawn Breda 20/65 mod.35 w/ servants. I took 116 pictures for this page and I show them all. No cropping/editing of any kinds except exposure adjustment for 4-5 pictures. It's strange to find out that all 7 items were taken in even numbers - 18, 12, 20, 12, 20, 18 and 16, making a total of 116! As always, I hope you'll enjoy viewing!

I'd like to thank for all kind feedbacks and compliments that we received concerning Page 57 - 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
