My Updates - STUG IIIG, M4A1 and M4A2

Hi all. As I have mentioned that I am putting aside my AP Group Build aside to learn chipping and weathering from my "Jedi Master", here are a few of my updates.

1. I started off my chipping training on a STUG III G late. Here are the photos. There are still some things to do before I would that it is completed.

2. I applied the techniques on my M4A1 Sherman only less of it.

This model will be completed after finishing the crew.

3. I started on a new Sherman M4A2 to replicate the French 2nd Armoured Division's "Romilly", 1 of the 1st 3 tanks to enter Paris. The hull came from Faxon's Conversion, the mud guard from Hauler and the rest straight form the box. The decals are from Gasoline. I forgot to put on the applique armour on the hull though. Sorry about that.

Hope you'll like what you see. Thanks for looking.

P/S: I went for a short vacation in a mountain retreat in Malaysia last week. Here's a photo of the sunrise over there. Hope you'll like it too.

Hi Calvin;

By jove, I think he's got it!!!! Calvin, the Stug's chipping is G O R G E O U S! That looks pretty much spot on to my eyes. And what you've done on the M4A1 is just what the doctor ordered to take it up another level.
I am inspired & impressed ( and I always love a good Sherman, too).

"Romilly" is another lovely tank too. Very original idea, and I think the first French Sherman I've seen here too. I like Steve Faxon's hulls (I have the M4A3E2 Jumbo from him, it's next in my build pile), and I am very keen to see more of Romilly.

All around, this is work to be proud of, Calvin, they are all excellent, my friend.

Cheers, Pat

Welcome to the DARK side of the Force....

Duke,

I am impressed totally by the great work done on the Stug. Your masters direct you well. I love the chipping and -on top of everything- the very clever use of filters over the dark yellow scheme. The result is really apealing to me.

Regarding the Shermans, both look very good and will look much better as far as you continue your weathering training. Go ahead without hesitation because you are on the right way and at this pace you will have the biuld on time sure.

Excellent upodate, brother.
Lu

PS: Please take me with you to your wonderfull holidays destination next time, okay? wink.gif
