Hello Peter

Your weathering looks great, I think it really makes the model.

Is it too late to offer you some free shipping stencils for the hull sides?

I'm just finishing a similar project and I've got a bunch of Archer rub-on stuff left over.



I think your build is fine as-is and I certainly understand the concept of "when its done, its done" (I, on the other hand, never seem to really finish anything) but if you wanted to add a little something extra....

Regards, Michael in Cloverdale.

Cracking colour and weathering!

Suggest you remove some of the dust collection that looks too obvious under the top hull tools.

Esp like the wire bits holding the hawsers down too.

About time we had some more Russian ones - mine's nearly done.

Peter, Great to see a Russian Sherman here. Your work on the mantlet canvas cover, which I originally saw on Planet Armor is top notch.
Wonderful work.

The cover was made with tissue, Wood glue and Evergreen- 0,5mm tube.

Here are some WIP - Pics.



It is really easy, try it.

hey Michael,

thanks for your kind offer. The build is finished.
But I will remember this really good looking Set.
Your M4A2 looks very good. Can´t remember, have you posted it here?

Cheers
Peter

Removing the dust won´t be easy, but I will consider that on the next tank (M4A3 (75) early)
I´m looking forward for your ruski sherman
