Hobby Boss 1/35 M4 High Speed Tractor

Recommended Posts

Hi All

This is my fourth build since returning to kits after many years and I'm really enjoying it, very relaxing and therapeutic! Well this one is the Hobby Boss M4 High speed Tractor which I just fancied the look of to be honest. It was a great kit, excellent value with the included PE, chains, paint masks, colour chart etc. great value. This is my first play with PE, god it's fiddly isn't it!

I still have a lot to learn with regards to weathering especially rust effects which I tried, binned and gave up un but practice makes perfect? Overall I'm reasonably happy for a fourth attempt. It was painted with a Tamiya rattle can and brushed Vallejo acrylics but have just invested in my first ever airbrush for future builds!

Mainly OOB except for some spares box weapons and accessories. I scratch built the tarpaulins and weapon slings using thin lead sheet and bought a set of Verlinden 1/35 WW2 US maps and documents.

Anyway I hope it's ok and thanks for looking!

That's a fantastic build with some great extra touches. The rolled back tarp is very effective

Thanks for your comments really kind thank you! I'm almost done with the next one which is the first effort with the airbrush so I'll get some pics up once I've finished it. I also need to have a go a some diorama bases to put them on but that and figures are two things I really struggle with.

Great little kit and an excellent job you've made of it, especially with the PE and extras. The tarpaulin is particularly good. Congrats on getting an airbrush. Your modelling will improve greatly as a result.

Rearguards,
