AFV M-36. construction is OTB. Of course all the stowage was added and for no reason it has a full load of brass 90mm AFV rounds in the ready racks. You can't see them but I know they are there and the model is heavy.

mid point of construction



In painting and weathering I followed a Fine Scale article in october and november 2010 issue called Sure-fire Sherman. I hate acrylics so this is all enamels. painting the interior of every facet a lighter shade of olive drab ( I used testers faded OD) and then using a raw umber wash makes it all blend together. MIG pigments for the dirt/dust.

Excellent M36 though. Always liked them (and the M10 as well.)

...nobody's ever been able to figure out where that name came from, or why it's stuck around.   It was just an M36, plain and simple. 

Nice looking model, the Jack... er,um,  M36 is my favorite tank destroyer.

... I love the weathering!

I wish I could get one in 1/48th to go with my M-10...
