31 August 2011 : Today I proudly present Model Maniac Page 61 - Part A. In this Part "Art Instructor" presents 5 new pieces of work. It took him 7 weeks to finish this batch (relatively very long time) and costed him an airbrush. Starting from ZBD 04 IFV from Hobby Boss - the first armor ever shown on this site with digital camouflage, followed by U.S. M3A1 "White Scout Car" Early Production from Hobby Boss, German Sd.Kfz.10/5 fur 2cm Flak38 and 2cm Flak Crew from Dragon and Diorama "Armoured Aerosled" using Trumpeter's Soviet Armored Aerosan NKL-26, then topping it off with something big - SAS 4x4 Desert Raider 1:6 from Dragon. As always, I hope you'll enjoy viewing!.

I'd like to thank for all kind feedbacks and compliments that we received concerning Page 60 - 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

001 - 019 : Hobby Boss' ZBD 04 IFV - "Art Instructor" said that 4-color digital camo is very difficult to paint because of uneven surfaces, and that this one alone took him a few weeks (hard to believe)

020 - 038 : Hobby Boss' U.S. M3A1 "White Scout Car" Early Production

039 -062 : Dragon's German Sd.Kfz.10/5 fur 2cm Flak38 + Griffon's 2cm Flak38 Barrel + Dragon's 2cm Flak Crew w/ Sd.Ah.51

063 - 078 : Diorama "Armoured Aerosled" using Trumpeter's Soviet Armored Aerosan NKL-26

079 - 111 : Dragon's SAS 4x4 Desert Raider 1:6 - Due to the massive size of this one, there was so much space to paint that Art Instructor's old airbrush (Iwata HP-C) broke down during the process. He had to buy a new one (Badger 150) to finish this kit.
