  1. Picked this up last weekend for not very much: Excellent choice for a quick build to start the vacation. Going to build it straight from the box all closed up as the Australian example. Here we go: and here is where I am at lunchtime (a bit of a delay due to a swift trip to Bunnings - Australian members will understand). So far no major issues. Running gear was a bit fiddly, but went together OK. So far only lost one handle to the carpet monster. Easily replaced by a bit of wire.
  2. First completion for 2022! Picked this up just before the Christmas vacation. Ideal as a quick project. Completed out of the box as a tank of the Australian 1st Armoured Division based at Puckapunyal Camp in central Victoria, Australia in 1942. Brush painted with Tamiya Acrylics and finished with a variety of Army Painter washes and diluted Italeri Acryl Dark Earth to obtain a nice dusty appearance. Build thread can be found here. For those that are interested, Puckapunyal Camp is still an active Australian military installation: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puckapunyal Thanks for looking.
  3. Hello all ūü•≥ Today I would like to introduce you to my latest vignette. Some of you already know the project from WIP, so I won't say too much. I hope you like the model, so have fun with the pictures! MD See you!
  4. Grant Mk.II (36445 for MiniArt) 1:35 Eduard MiniArt recently released a new tool M3 Lee, and then added lots of other versions and variants, some of them Grants (35282 for example) in British service. This set is an upgrade to the kit, adding lots of new parts in more scale-accurate thicknesses for the fenders than are possible with injection moulded parts. As usual with Eduard's Photo-Etch (PE) and Mask sets, it arrives in a flat resealable package, with a white backing card protecting the contents and the instructions that are sandwiched between. The set consists of one large fret of bare brass and includes two small protected switches for the interior, two lengths of PE retaining chain for the filler caps, then it moves onto the front fenders, replacing the kit parts entirely. There are two styles of fenders on the sheet, variants A and B. The A fenders are curved and given strengthening relief by running a ball-pen over the rear where indicated, then they are folded to shape and applied to the front with additional parts making up the detail. A strip runs the whole length of the tracks, and a new simple flat rear fender is fitted to the back. Variant B is more complex and as well as using the curved front fender in variant A, is fitted with an additional boxed out and riveted front fender and another at the rear, with a deeper strip along the side of the vehicle. Additional strips are added at the front to depict the small details there. Conclusion Having more in-scale fenders will add a lot of realism to your model, so they’re definitely worth considering. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  5. A very fun build now completed. Hope you like how it turned out. Stay healthy and cool out there. /T
  6. According to http://the.shadock.free.fr/sherman_minutia/index.html there were only 1,686 M3 Grants ordered by the British Purchasing Commission - 685 from Baldwin, 501 from PSC and 400 from Pullman. Most of them (1,212) were riveted-hull M3 and the rest was composed of 381 riveted-hull M3A5 diesels, 83 welded-hull M3A3 diesels and 10 welded-hull M3A2 with aircraft radial engine. Whole order was covered by the WD serials from T-23504 through T-25188 plus one odd T-25589. On the other hand both Tanks Encyclopedia and Wikipedia say that altogether Britain was allocated with 2,855 Grants, which leaves 1,169 vehicles for the Lend-Lease supplies. Is anybody able to give their variant details and WD serials? Cheers Michael
  7. So it's back to the desert for me with a simple little diorama to show off the Merit 1/35th M19 Diamond T Tank Transporter. The tank for transport is Monty's M3 Grant from the Tamiya 1/35 kit. As it's dificult to see the driver in the cab, i'm adding a local inhabitant utilising the transport of the time! So the basic layout is: With the componants as mentioned above!
  8. Hi all im a newbie here at BM. I've already got one topic in ww2 aviation for spitfire's. So if i've overstepped my bounds chalk it up to newbie lack of knowledge. Anyhow my story is this my Grandfather drove shermans in the pacific for the U.S.Army. He drove all variants of the Sherman. But he trained initially here in the states in 1942 on M3 Lee's both Rivited hulls and cast. He passed almost 20 years ago and since i was the only one in my family he ever told his story to i feel obligated to build his tanks. These wont be my first armored vehicles. I have a number of shermans built including his tank. It also seems that because i've been so interested in ww2 history my family has made me the impromptu historian. I had a granduncle that joined the Royal Navy's polish navy in exile there in Britain in 1940. Thats another story i will eventually start a thread in ships because i have no ability to recreate his british vessel. But thats another story/thread. My problem is this I've built Tamiya's 1/35 M3 Lee. Though its very innacurate considering its based on a prototype (lack of cut-out for engine access doors being the most glaring one.) Tamiya's Grant is the correct hull for both versions so i will consider grafting the two together. Now i've looked at academy's offering and will eventually build that one. But no one any where has attempted to mold a cast hull of an M3. Does anyone know of any attempts in england/europe of this. If so any contact info would be greatly appreciated. Also maybe someone would know this. Did the M3 Grants ever use cast hulls? And if yes did anyone make a kit of one of these? I predominantly deal with 1/35th scale but will build anything if it gets me the version i need. To all i say thanks for any info and thanks for letting me tell a rambling story. Dennis
