which Sherman kit is it? Is this the one you sort of combined various parts from here and there or is this another kit. Regardless, I love the finish on it Pat...fantastic work as always. Ever consider a booklet explaining your particular style? I would surely buy a copy as I think many of us here would. Take care Pat and can't wait for more! Edward
Thank you, my friend. This is indeed the model I showed on here a while back, it started life as a Tamiya M4A1, but sfter many, many AM additions (MR Models, RB Models, Fighting48th, Hauler, Legends, and many small scratchbuilt bits, etc...) here it is.
Here it is before paint:
I never realized how much the early Shermans differed from the later ones, phew!
About the booklet/article, if you go over to Track48.com and leave a message for a Mr. David Yarnell (his email address escapes me at the moment), he can sort you out. He archived an entire step-by-step blog I did ealrier this year on a Tamiya IC Firefly. It explains how I finish my kits, from A to Z.
what was that quote from the "Highlander" film ... better to burn out than fade away...
Pat , you are on a stormer here. Really love how you have got that sun drenched faded effect on the paint. The micro chipping is done really well and the addition of the fuel/ammo containers in different colours really add interest.
....going on that the rest of us don't know about? Seriously great stuff. You guys are just going to drag the rest of us into doing Shermans with all the exceptional ones being displayed on this forum.
I love it Pat - keep going man (we are ALL watching).
spending my time watching a PATsherman. Great mate, as ever this will be an outstanding one.
That's really admirable how much fun you shown with this thing altough it is so often a Sherman again.
You're really Shermanholic !
