  1. Didn't use the tools or the putty i sent you then.....
  2. Hi Thanks for the kind words ...no it was a piece of MDF coated with plaster of Paris the cobblestones were carved in using a darning needle and the tram tracks are scraps of plasticard.
  3. Stunning work mate ..... can't wait to see a coat of paint on this bad boy well done
  4. Well you did a lovely job on this ..... i do have to point out one thing however........ hope you don't mind.........in the black and white pic the Tiger is a steel wheel late model, that said this modelmaking malarkey is as much about artistic licence as anything, and definitely doesn't detract from the great job you have done on your build.
  5. I have just realized that i have been commenting on your build on Facebook..... and didn't realize till i saw these pics.
  6. Stunning piece withy some beautiful weathering and very nice pictures ....well done indeed Just one thing ...the fire extinguisher on the engine decks were never painted red...they would have been grey from the factory and probably body colour once in active service due to the vehicle being repainted in the field
  7. Can i join your Black panther party (quote Forrest Gump 7 October 1994) Sorry couldn't resist...i'll get me coat Lovely job and i think ...might be the first time i have seen one of your Sherman builds done and wearing paint, did you hand paint the stencilling or was it a decal set? either way job done mate and very impressive.
  8. Well George the gunner doesn't look to interested so pass it over here......might be red wine, some gunners get headaches from red wine ...Lovely job on the model mate looks fabulous.
  9. Hit me up when your on @Das Abteilung..... i have some cash for you
  10. OOOhhh if you can spare the kit and have the rear end drop me a pm and i will paypal you the cash, much rather it went in your pocket than some random on Ebay...and thanks again for the help .....i'm on Sherman minutia at the moment reading as much as i can
  11. Just the info i needed thank you very much ...now i have something to work on..... do any of the tamiya kits offer a turret that might lend to this build? i ask about the Tamiya kits because there cheap and i won't mind hacking one of those apart for this. I know AFV Club do a set of bogies that might fit the bill, The kit was supposed to have the engine rear plate but it wasn't in the box but it shouldn't be too hard to scratch that..... USMC sounds interesting but i haven't done any British armour so that is tempting as well.
  12. Been digging on the interwebs and it appears to be kit 333 M4A2 lend lease conversion, so i'm guessing for a Russian /French possibly British Sherman 75mm, need more info really.
  13. Might i please pick the brains of our resident expert in all things Sherman @Das Abteilung. Yesterday at my local club meeting i picked this up for a song, cheap enough that i didn't want to turn it down, on inspection when i got home it wasn't what i was expecting But if you can identify it for me should still make for an interesting project. Is it accurate? What would be a suitable donor for it for completion? what theatre would it have been used and by who? Any pics for reference if you have any? Many thanks in advance ...and don't hold back .....ultimately if its not worth the time spent then i will Ebay it for somebody with a more comprehensive stash then me to do.
  14. Congratulations mate a job well saved ...... don't know how you managed that , you must have the patience of a saint because i think i woulda scraped it in the bin with all that agro with the tracks, seriously well done mate a win for sure.
