31 December 2011 : Today I proudly present Model Maniac Page 62 - Part B just in time to celebrate New Year 2012. In this Part "Art Instructor" presents 6 new pieces of work which has taken him over 3 months to finish, partly due to the fact that he's gotten lazy lately and partly because his house was affected by the flood for over one month. His work this time around comprises 3 modern armors and 3 WWII ones. Starting from M1151 Enhanced Armament Carrier from Academy and Pick Up w/ ZPU-1 from Meng Model, followed by BTR-80A from Zvezda, Henschel 33D1 WWII German Army Truck from ICM and German Kfz.14 Radio Armored Car from Bronco, then topping it off with Panzerjager Triebwagen 51 from Trumpeter.

I acquired a total of 257 kits in 2010 and I thought it would be hard to break this record. But I broke it in the first 5 months of this year, and the total kits acquired this year amounts to 640 kits. That's more than doubles last year's record. The details of 2011 acquisition kit by kit is available here: Model Maniac's Annual Report 2011 This time the record will surely stand for a very long long time because I've been out of job for 3 months now. And, 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 62 - 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
