This is the AFV early M5 with Blast Models resin sandbag set. The figures are the excellent Miniart US tank crew, mind you the heads are really awful and need replacing, but the bodies are true 1/35 scale. Looking closely at the photos i will do a little more work on the track teeth i think.
As usual all comments or pointers are welcome.

Dave,
it looks great, I love the figures and the weathering is superb as usual.
The groundwork is realy well done.

I think the track pads would have picked up a lot of dust and marks from the gravel road though.

tank and crew are all just super. Lifelike poses on the figgies and they look "settled" into their surroundings just right.

Your right i still need to do a little work on the track pads as well. It's good to get fresh eyes and a different perspective on things.
Regard's, Dave.

Love the groundwork, that roadbed is sharp.
