Aye up Joss.

 

Lovely work on the etch and will looh great with a bit of paint on it :yes:

 

Agree about HVSS Shermans looking more menacing and hefty. Especially when it has a great gonzo 105 in the turret! :fight:

 

Regards.

so I've got most of it painted and ready for the decals not sure what option to go for but maybe the one with Andy on the side of the turret next to the star.

I painted her black first.

Lovely subtle shading, that should 'pop' beautifully under a clear cote and some washes/filters.  :coolio:

I've added some baggage I've got I don't think I'm going to go to over board on it but let me know what you think!

IMG_20180116_201627

I  made a few sand bags but I think the left hand side ones are to big so I've made them smaller now!

And I made some logs from abit of square balsa. I might tie them down to the side.

WIP

IMG_20180116_210526

Done

Let me know what you think not really sure on what I can get away with.

Looking good dude.  :coolio:

 

Would some reasonably stout twigs not be a better bet than balsa?  That irregularity & variation in texture is hard to simulate.

Great progress, nice colours.

What gloss did you use?

 

Oh, and I agree with Sarge. If I want logs I use twigs. If you want wood,  you can't beat wood. Stop giggling you Americans!

Cheers sarge! I think you might be right,

I'll have a look at work see what I can find. Any recommendations on what plant I'm looking for? :)

Hi Joss,

Sorry I took so long to get back to you. For logs I'd use thin twigs. Just visit your garden, or a nearby hedgerow and have a look around. Obviously you want straight bits of the right length and with a nice bark texture. Trees, bushes and shrubs come in a variety of sizes and textures so you should find something suitable. If you can't find anything with a nice barky texture get one with a smooth texture and then carve the bark pattern into it with a scalpel.

 

May I ask why you've chosen a reddish/rust colour for the dirt on the wheels and around the hatch?

 

Rearguards,

Badder

Cheers badder, I'll have a look at work tomorrow see what small twigs I can reuse! 

I have to admit with the red one I got a box set of four and the label said cargo dust and it looked a brown in the pot so I just bungged it on but I don't think it looks 110, just did get round to removing it!

Cheers

Joss
