25 June 2011 : Today I proudly present Model Maniac Page 60 - Part B. In this Part there are 10 new pieces of work on show. The first one is a diorama from a new modeler named "m4sherman". He posted for sale his partially built Panzer III and a few figures (part of a set) in a local hobby site. I agreed to buy and asked him to finish them for me. Without an airbrush, he used Tamiya's spray paint to do the job and I think he's done a good job. The remaining 9 pieces are the works of "pj" who first impressed me with his 1:72 figures. Now I'm impressed again with his 1:35 figures and dioramas. He's surely a great artist. The last few dioramas were taken in low light because of setting sun. Many of the images' exposure had been adjusted by "ACDSee 9.0", making the figures brighter and the backdrop darker. There is one image that you may see the difference between "original" and "adjusted" exposure, it's #311. 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 60 - 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
