  1. Keeping D-Day Fresh/Current Here is a photo of the Local Library Display with Models built by my club ,Three Rivers IPMS, Pittsburgh. Aircraft are all my builds. Display will be available from 15 May through 15 June 2019. Cheers Bill D.
  2. Thanks Guys I figured this Tank would have just left the water on its way off the beach so weathering might not be "Tankish". My concepts on finish Cheers Bill
  3. This is my only armor model in the last 10 years. I am an aircraft guy. D-Day has me venturing. I have found at least 5 different Versions of Sherman's on D-Day so M4A3 was recommended by the Resin makers of the Vents and so that is what I used. This is a Hobbyboss 1/48th Sherman. I used thinned Milliput for the tarps and Gunze Olive drab as I liked the shade(another thing that has 5 or more different shades) Mostly out of box except for the vents from Black Dog, added applique armor to sides ,tarps, Stretched sprue antenna, and wires added for quick release of the vents. Not glass was in kit so a bit of spare clear was added for view in upper turret. Tarps were a big pain in the A!@#$%^SS. Markings were spare decals and Painted Stars Thanks for technical help from fellow Pittsburgh modelers John Bonanni , John Szczypinski and John Russell Final D-Day project until "Group Build" on this Site Comments welcome Thanks for Looking Cheers Bill

  8. Thank you all for the kind feedback. Complete D-Day Group Photos to follow. Cheers Bill
  9. There may be accuracy issues, putting that up front, but it is a Horsa in D-Day markings. Serial matches Pegasus Bridge aircraft and Chalk 91 is under the loading door,Trust Me. I used the decals that Eduard supplied in their small give-away kits. Serials were fromDan Taylor to match the D-Day Pegasus bridge assault. Stripes were done rough on purpose matching most of my reference materials. I used the open section to brake up the LOOOOONNNGG Cylinder of the Horsa. What a large aircraft this was. Last Striped Model for my display in May/June Comments welcome (be nice on accuracy please) Cheers Bill
  10. How about an inexpensive kit built "Out of Box"...This was challenging in its own way but fills my need for a P-47 in D-Day markings. Xtradecal has outfitted a few models for me recently. X72196 has quite a collection of Overlord markings. Are there issues, sure but looks like a P-47 to me. Gun Barrels aren't offset a whole lot, engine is oversimplified(Try seeing though)wheel well details are sparse, interior is non-existant (also try seeing it). Surface detail is nice and construction was about 6 hrs and only a couple of fills need on the fuselage sides. Painted with Vallejo Air Colors and painted on stripes.Uschi powder on the prop spinner boss Should be my last "striped aircraft" for awhile. Thanks for taking a look and feedback is always welcome Cheers Bill
  11. Appreciate the suggestion...But I don't Think so.
  12. Thank You all very much for the Positive feedback. Horsa is in Progress Regards Bill
