Hi everyone

I would like to show you my last project, Sherman M4A1 DV Honky Tonk from Tunisa 1943.
I used to build Dragon's kit, with minor additions, bar rels from RB Model and some Aber photoetched
Model has been painted with Tamiya and Lifecolor acrylics. I used method which show master M. Rinaldi -Tamiya OD as base coat, then over-sprayed and lightened with Lifecolor. I Used lacquer thinner for removal of light OD coat to show the darker color underneath.

Thanks for looking.
Marry Christmas!

best regards Krzysztof

Great job on this Sherman. The painting and weathering looks very realistic.

Only one thing, the tracks need to be tighter around and after the sprocket. As it seems to "float" upwards a bit.

Andreas, thanks for your kind words.
I'll try to fix this track.

Best regards
