Finally made a start on my new Tamiya M10 Tank Destroyer. Will be completed as a Royal Artillery vehicle in Italy in 1944 using Bison decals that I have had knocking around a while. Will also be using the new Ammo by Mig Sherman Commonwealth acrylic paint set. Have assembled the back plate, differential cover and interior floor and sponson plates. Some photos are a bit grainy as light was starting to go.
This is my first group build on BM, and it couldn't have been a better subject for me. Shermans figure very high on my build list with over a dozen in 1/35th and 1/48th scales built already. For this build I wanted to do something a little different and having recently received a conversion from Greg Beuchler for the Chilean M60, it was decided. When Israel had finished with it's M50's and M51's, a lot were passed over to the Chilean army. Some modifications were made to the M50's in the form of an engine change, which in turn resulted in a new engine deck, and a change of main gun in the form of a very powerful 60mm cannon. The subject for this build is based on an ex IDF M50 that itself was based on an M4A1 with HVSS. I was originally going to use the Tamiya M51 as the base kit, but remembered that I had the old Dragon M51 which I was using as spares, so that's the one that I'm going with. The turret will come from Dragon's M50 kit. The conversion set. The markings, of which there are very few, are from the Bison decal sheet for South American Shermans, which is now available under the Star Decals banner. Well, it's nearly time for the off, so until then, thanks for looking. John.
