THE OLDE GENERAL, M-47 PATTON 1/35 ITALERI FINISHED

Recommended Posts

Hi Pals, al last I finished the model, and IHMO, I think it has been to my liking.
I was pleasantly surprised, to see that even being such an ancient mold, still has a very good level of quality (I think even better than some models Tamiya of the time, and that time, were twice as expensive or so. ..)
Once finished, you see a pretty powerful tank, a whole "Heavy metal", precursor of the "beasts" that would follow.

On the other hand, the kit has a fairly simple assembly, no major problems to solve, if you want to OOB, although I have had two delicate enough, the hull and turret were twisted,and it was difficult to bring them together, and the tracks that are degraded by the passage of time and broke. Perhaps now come of better plastic quality.

Here is a link to the WIP section, in case you want to see it.

Thanks to all who have followed the assembly and finishing kit, and have supported and encouraged me with your suggestions and comments. :cheers:

Regards to all Pals :bye:

Love it.

I always wanted to build this kit in German 'Battle of the Bulge' film markings - grey with big crosses on the turret and a 1/35 Robert Shaw in the turret!

Thank you very much for your more than kind comments, I'm so glad you like it so much, perhaps the merit is not mine, (although I always try to teach the most accurate possible model as I see it, with values in neutral mode), and yes SLR cameras, which are incredible, although it is true that they are able to make nuances naked eye does not see the human eye, yes, for better or worse. :fight:

Cheers Stix :bye:
