really interesting looking tank, it might be my favorite version of the sherman so far. Good work on the paintjob. How did you achieved the multi-tone effect on the model ?

I do the base coat of dark browns then lay down hair spray followed by base coat.start first round of chipping.Followed by another round of hair spray then a much lighter shade of paint then start taking that layer off.Its not supposed to be a perfect finish.It just adds dimension to the color not so monotone..

Rad looking tank ! A simple diorama would highlight all the work you've done so far. Not a big fan of overdone dioramas with a gazillion features, it takes the attention away from the vehicle imo.
