Tamiya's fantastic offering of the M4A3(76)W HVSS, commonly referred to as the "Easy Eight." Aftermarket goodies: Friul tracks, RB Model metal barrels (main gun and machine guns), Panzer Art antenna mount (I forgot to drop the actual antenna in the mount), Value Gear stowage. Painted with a combination of AK Interactive Real Colors, Tamiya, and Vallejo paints; weathered using Ammo of Mig, AK, and Mig Productions enamels, 502 Abteilung oils, and a touch of Vallejo acrylic weathering effects. 

 

Comments and criticism welcomed as always!

Looks great. Nice work on the stowage, the wooden & metal boxes are particularly well done.

Excellent job. As others have said the stowage is great and i especially like the cardboard boxes. I really like Value Gear stuff as it has no nasty casting blocks to remove.

 

Regards,

Really well done! 

And Purcellville. Love that town. The makerspace I'm a member of is out there. I can't wait for this covid crap to end, so I can make my way down there again.

Thanks mate!

 

For pictures, I use an older camera body (Nikon D3100) with just the kit lens. Everything is set to manual on the camera and I shoot in RAW format. I use some anti-glare PVC backdrops I found on Amazon; I have a couple different colors, but prefer the white unless it clashes with the subject. I also have two large softboxes for the lighting. The only post I do is some color balancing and cropping/resizing with Gimp 2.0, which is freeware and good enough for what I need it for.

 

The tiedown rope is white #2 bead cord (.45mm) that I "dyed" by dipping it in enamel washes. I found out about while watching a YouTube video from the guy that makes Value Gear stowage and it works brilliantly.

Wow, this is an amazing job! Weathering is fantastic and stowage and that wooden plank at the front are absolutely convincing.
