T26E4 Super Pershing (completed)

All figures completed and added items on the tank with weathering done.

I was looking at the pictures of the build and thought this looked cool…

U.S. T26E4 Super Pershing

The Pershing is done only thing left is the 3 figures and items to go on top of the tank. Maybe a little more mud…

Next will be the 88mm FlaK 36 auf Pz.Kpfw.IV Ausf.H from Dragon

(best of two models in one… the Panzer IV chassis with a 88mm cannon)drg6829


T26E4 and Marsh Diorama

While waiting for the backdrop to be painted I started on the Super Pershing and was looking at a plaque I ran across cleaning up and made a marsh diorama.

The tank is painted now and just needs the tracks and other parts painted and added the decals and weathering. (not much to this model at all)

Barn diorama (3-1)

Small update, a few things added and finished. There is (at this time) only two more things to go. The pig and a backdrop from there I will use this for other World War II models.

Barn diorama (3)


After updating the web site to show more in the main post and waiting for weathering to dry… This is a small update—– Let me know what you think about the new look on the site..

Water is in and some trash still working on the wagon wheel and logs. Just might use this for each WWII model I build for pictures (might). Also added twitter in the mix… might post small updates on there.  @ronkirk50


Barn diorama (2)


Moving right along with the diorama adding weathering and lights. Next will be more weathering and debris after everything dries.

night-shot Just added this of the night shot.. already added water

Next project I think will be a U.S. super Pershing T26E4 (I don’t have one in the collection)


Barn diorama (1)


A little update on the barn – A lot of waiting while things dry and I’m thinking I may add a power poll (might)

Still have not added all the markings on the halftrack (click read more for the rest of the pictures)



Barn diorama


While weathering this halftrack I thought about how this would look in one of the dioramas I had started and ended up stopping it to start a larger format to hold all 3 models.

I will be working on the weathering, markings and the diorama at the same time and may even put lights in the barn.
