Picture M4 Sherman-2nd AD, 66th Ar. Reg.
Here we have the Tamiya M4 Sherman; Iíve added Friul track, the Legend Stowage set, Eduard PE and some extra resin and plastic parts as well as an older Royal Model figure. The color scheme is that of 2nd AD, 66th Armored Regiment. My first position as a gunner on an M1IP was back in the mid 80ís, in C- Company 1st BN, 66th Armored Regiment. So I took this opportunity and changed the bumper number to that of my tank back then. I always liked the look of a tank or vehicle partially hanging over the base; this is why I chose to model the tank going down a slight hill, hanging over the sides.
Hope you like it.

Cheers

Picture M3A1 Stuart
This time I built an older kit from Academy, the M3A1 Stuart. This was built OOTB, except the resin accessories, and the figure. The original idea was to portray him in Africa, but after I found a very interesting picture of a Marine Stuart going up a hill to take out a Japanese sniper, I changed my idea and the plan accordingly. I completely painted the interior but unfortunately after I changed my idea, this canít be seen anymore.
The model was painted with Life Colors, Vallejo and Humbrol paints. Thereafter, a slight over-sprayed with Future to seal everything, and then the decals were applied, followed by a color filter with live color earth and sand. After everything dried, I used a brown wash from MIG, which I found to be very good and has become one of my favorite washes to use. After the wash was dry, I dry brushed using oils and Humbrol, which was followed with a slight dust using Tamiya earth, the dirt was created with artist pigments.
The one piece of beech wood, I bought at Boesner a local Art Supply store. The biggest challenge was to cut the corner at an angle so that the tank would be going up the hill at an angle instead of just across. But after a lot of cutting and more cutting, it worked out and I was pleased. I used Moellte Mix, which is a wood filler colored with Apple Tree colors, which I still have left over from Wal-Mart, almost 10 years old and still going strong, to paint the ground work. Before everything dried I pushed the Model into the wet groundwork to make it part of the base and waited until everything was dry. Once everything was dry, I did another overspray with Tamiya earth, and then tied in some more Artist Pigments. The last part was to add some vegetation.

FYI- I got the general idea from a picture, but I didnít copy the picture 100%, so there is no US flag or a lot of baggage on the Stuart in the Picture. It did however have the deep water wadding kits, and some bags on the back deck.

Hope you like it.

Picture M 26 Pershing by RJ
This is 1:35 kit from Chinese Trumpeter. As always I painted it with Tamiya acrylic paints. I always mix my own colours. Then I cover model with glossy coat and put decals and add black wash. Next day I dry brush it, coat it with flat transparent coat to seal decals and wash and weather it with pastels. I don't use pigments. I file pastel crayons and use the powder to mimic dust and mud. I also made out of tissue a canvas cover which is rolled and attached to the fender.
