First and foremost, thank you PlaStix and Corsairfoxfouruncle for hosting this GB!

 

Tamiya 1/48 M4 Sherman Early Production, an unidentified unit in France, August '44

 

This was OOB save LionMarc's metal barrel. I used the Mr Color Color Modulation Set: Olive Drab to give it some tonal variation.

Tamiya's Mark Fit Strong helped me successfully use Tamiya decals for the first time! Previous attempts with their decals were entirely unsuccessful.

Again, thank you PlaStix and Corsairfoxfouruncle for hosting this GB. :clap2:

 

Tamiya 1/48 British Sherman IC Firefly, 23rd Hussars, 11th Armoured Div., 1944 Putanges, France. The same period as my other build. This is a first for me, 2 builds in a GB! :penguin:

 

Also OOB save for RB's metal barrel. I used Mr Color RLM71 as a stand-in for SCC 15 based on its color relative to Mr Color OD 2 (C-38). Like my other build, I used Mr Color's OD Color Modulation set to add some minor interest. Mr Color Flat White (C-62) was used for the barrel camo with a bespoke mask based on The Sherman Register. The Army Painter Warpaints were used for details.

Morning folk's.Tamiya kits never dissapoint regardles of their age and this was no exeption,my youngest fancied trying 1/35 armour their Panther seemed like a good

starter kit.Here's the Sherman with the 105mm howitzer trying to look like she would have done as Winter turned to Spring in 1945 with almost worn off whitewash.
