Wader Sherman D-Day project

Recommended Posts

This is my only armor model in the last 10 years. I am an aircraft guy. D-Day has me venturing. I have found at least 5 different Versions of Sherman's on D-Day so M4A3 was recommended by the Resin makers of the Vents and so that is what I used.

This is a Hobbyboss 1/48th Sherman. I used thinned Milliput for the tarps and Gunze Olive drab as I liked the shade(another thing that has 5 or more different shades)

Mostly out of box except for the vents from Black Dog, added applique armor to sides ,tarps, Stretched sprue antenna, and wires added for quick release of the vents. Not glass was in kit so a bit of spare clear was added for view in upper turret.

Tarps were a big pain in the A!@#$%^SS.

Markings were spare decals and Painted Stars

Thanks for technical  help from fellow Pittsburgh modelers John Bonanni , John Szczypinski and John Russell

Lovely job for 1/48th.

There's definitely a 'wingy thing' feel about paint finish. I half expect it to sprout wings!

 

Rearguards,

Thanks Guys

I figured this Tank would have just left the water on its way off the beach so weathering might not be "Tankish". My concepts on finish

Cheers
