Big_Bad_Bill Posted January 2 Share Posted January 2 Hi, Folks, it's been a while since I've posted anything on here. It is both a change of scale and off my normal subjects. Yes, I've finally made a Sherman. I couldn't resist the Lidl (or was it Aldi) specials and bought the Airfix starter kits of the Sherman and Tiger. I've only got a couple days leave left so I wanted something quick. Quicker than I thought as I started it yesterday afternoon and finished it already! It is nearly OoTB. The only changes were: losing the bow gun (why oh why Airfix), drilling out the end of the barrel, turret texture using Mr Hobby 1500 and a stiff brush, and made light guards using wire. I didn't use the paint supplied - I used Ammo by Mig SCC15. The gloss varnish was Quick Shine, matt varnish by Vallejo, the pin wash is oil paint and turps, and the pigment was Ammo by Mig Dark Earth. And I wanted to do the white underneath of the barrel since seeing it in a photo once. I really enjoyed the kit, especially for £6.99! It's simplified - it was only two sprues. For instance the running gear and tracks were in one piece. It's not particularly accurate but a fun build nevertheless. Bill 24 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
