G'day Andy

You should be very proud of how this one turned out.
Some like their models to look like museum displays but to my eyes this is so much better.
Maybe an attempt at some battle damage in a future project?

Thanks for kind words, genX' - quite pleased with how the old kit turned out, despite its' faults.  :)

Battle damage? These guys are more than likely to get some.









I'm also on the look-out for a suitable panzer I can wreck for a Berlin diorama - although I'm tempted to use WWI British ones... :o

Tamiya 1/35 M4A3 75 Sherman. This one's a little monster. Nothing wrong at all with the kit - I highly recommend it, comes with loads of figures and enough stowage for two or three vehicles, too. It's just that the one I bought is cursed.  :o

 I've had it a long time and return to it every now and again to fix broken parts, retrieve crew figures from the interior, touch in paint that has lifted, and so on. If it can go wrong, it's gone wrong.

I don't know why the little pig attracts clumsiness on my part, but it does - as mentioned, it's a nice kit, typical Tamiya 'idiot-proof shake & bake'. It won't beat me, but I've found that I make more progress with irregular 'hit and run' sessions than sitting down for days until it's finished. Very much a work in progress - my unfinished symphony.  ;D

She's already been put back to one side, I'll sneak up on her again when she's least expecting it.  ;)

A busy day with not a lot to show for it. Still, that's the last two villagers done...



Nice sets that compliment each other very well. I got lost for hours trying to decypher the language of Russian/Soviet headscarves, figured that unbleached linen was a safe option.







Just need a village to put them in now.  ;D

Can you guess what it is, yet?  ;)

I'm afraid not, my friend.

A little further down the road...

Correct!   ]cheers[



Really nice kit (so far), although the plastic is somehow very soft, yet brittle. Weird.

Ready for painting. The turret's still loose. The two-piece vinyl tracks were a pain in the arse, as were some needless microscopic parts that could have moulded onto larger parts. Still, there she is, the whole thing feels very fragile compared to most other tanks I've built.

A little progress. First coat of Klear, decals on, first highlight, first wash. Currently stuck waiting for wash to thoroughly settle and dry before a coat of matt varnish and more highlighting. Quite a lot still to do, but I really enjoy this stage...

Beatiful works Andy, there's a lot to learn from you ;D

the whole thing feels very fragile

Yes, the only thing I don't like in scale modeling that there are builds that's plastics are very very fragile and you could literally break it by squeezing. Like... why?
