Hi,
Some years ago I built this Italeri M4A1 (the only kit on the market at that time) and last month I rebuilt and repainted it.
Some pictures of the first building stage (I think it was 2002 when I took them with my old film camera)

The rebuilding stage: some new Eduard PE, new pistol port casting, new gun and a reworked gun shield

- second weathering with oil paints and some MIG pigments. I reproduce 10-1 ration boxes with a CAd program and then I printed them on thin tan paper. Tanker comes from Alpine.
