    I’ve been fiddling with it today. I adjusted the tie down rope although I still think I need to stain it darker still. The tarp was removed from the wall and I’ve added some tufts of grass/broken rock etc around it in areas. I’m pretty happy with it now and I don’t think I’ll be changing much on it now. Next time it will be finished Sean

    Thanks for the tips, especially the dill tops for moss. I have indeed given the Sherman a Matt coat, all weathering has been finished on that. Luckily the tarp is only held down by two small drops of CA so it’s easily removed. I agree that the tie down rope is too thick and too stark so that’s on my to do list. The way I’ve placed it over the stowage is to give the impression that the crew has been getting things out. My idea was that they were having a rest etc, it should look more authentic once everything is in position. The pale background for the grass is the glue holding it in place, it’s dried clear now .

    First off, apologies for the pictures. They’re not great because the lighting isn’t good. I filed down some of the worst parts of the wall and applied more filled then more sanding. It’s better now and I’m leaving it as it is now. I’ve added a small tarp and a few tufts of grass to hide the bits that are still not too great. I’m still fiddling with the Sherman and where to put the crew and stowage and I’ve also realised I haven’t fitted the tow hook or exhausts . Sean

    Thanks guys. @Badder lovely Sherman, I’ve attacked the wall with some files and filler over the last few days. I need to prime it again to see if it looks any better. Sean

    Thanks for the tip, I found some grey ballast which might work to a similar effect. Sean

    Thanks. Yeah, the seam along the wall is a bit of a pain. I’m going to have some canvas sheeting draped over the worst to cover it. Sean

    Ole seven leg, Spider wars.

    That one is guarding the garage door. It was very nearly successful in keeping me out of it.

    Ole seven leg, Spider wars.

    Anyone know what that is? It has the largest abdomen I’ve ever seen on a spider. Apologies for the photo, it was dark and I was loooking out for it’s big brother Sean

    Indeed. They normally do the council out of a job trimming the trees around here.

    A C-17 and 2 Chinooks this lunchtime. The thing that got me was the fact that the C-17 was flying lower than the Chinooks Sean

    I’ve applied some chipping to the tank. I could do with some opinions on that score. To me it looks like I’ve overdone it but I’m not familiar with the Sherman so I’m not sure what state they got into. I’ve also made a start on the base painting using AK wet mud. The .50 cal with the RB barrel was also assembled. Sean

    I’ve been messing with various things for the last few days. I’ll add one more crew member sitting in the turrets plus a few more odds and sods scattered over the tank. More soon. Sean
