Taking a little longer from errors in the model build as in direction and parts not right and I’m adding extras.
This next project will be 3 models and diorama
Models will be
- Sherman M4A1 DV (just a little work started)
- M21 Mortar Motor Carriage (65% done)
- M7 Priest early production (not started)
I’ll post more pictures as I go
After all these years I finally have something I can build for my father.
He was on the USS Pitkin County (LST-1082) in Vietnam War and I have not found a WWII LST yet. The PBR’s would dock at his ship for fuel and rest so he was really happy I had one in the box. So this is the next project and will be posting as I build so he can watch.
This was put together for a tanker who drove this M48A3.
We met for the first time last year
First model in the new house is the 6×6 Cargo truck.
It will be after Christmas when this will be done (waiting on a stencil printer) this way I can try painting a copy of the decals on the back of the truck and then onto the tank transporter.
After that it will be weathered and completed
Update: Completed… the old decals were a pain next time I look for new ones With having a house being built I have not spent as much time as I’d like on the models.
That being said I have also been working on the Kanonenwagen with free hand camouflage and weathering to get the “I’ve been mudding” look. Still have a bit more work and waiting to see how the paint dries (mud effects)
Best of all for my birthday my daughter got airbrush for me.
I bought this a few years ago but never took the time to get back into modeling. This was still in the box and plastic. This model is more about painting detail than just build/paint/weather. Very small in size but still enjoyable while I wait for information on what transmission housing is needed for a friend, the Sherman tank his dad used while serving in WWII.
All pictures and updates of this VW will be under this post and at the end I’ll put them all together like the last two.
