Tamiya (ne Tasca) 1/35th Sherman Easy Eight

Recommended Posts

Today's work on the Easy Eight.


First I printed some C Ration boxes onto light brown card, then cut a couple out

Then score lightly, fold and glue with a Pritt Stick and you get some nice cheap C Ration boxes for storage

Then cut out a sheet of lead foil, and sprayed Red to make an Aircraft Identification Panel

Next added the tracks - only a couple of bouts of swearing to get them on, but got there in the end.

Added some Winter Streaking Grime and some Rainmarks

Then added the stowage and the ID panel. Weathered the Jerry cans with some Wet Effects and Fuel stains

Nearly done now, just needs the Periscopes and the lights and more mud tomorrow

wow it really looks great!

is this a brand new release? looks so crisp and detailed

Sam

It's a Tamiya rebox of the Tasca / Asuka kit, with the addition of a couple of figures from Tamiya ( that i'm not going to use ). It was a limited release, they all seem to have gone now - I had the devil of a time getting one.

I see, do you have any experience of tasca kits? are they as crisp as this one is?

Shame it was a limited release, you have certainly done it justice though.

This is the first Tasca Sherman I've built but I've got a few of them and they are all lovely. General opinion is that they are the best Sherman kits.

Then umasked the periscopes and painted with Mig Periscope colour, added a couple of rust streaks and some dirt on the ID panel.
