Hi, a small update.

@Michael, nice one!

I search about Abram's M4, and I need another hull to correct reproduce the Baldwing one.

So, I change it to a more "common" one, maybe "Tonto" or another one that I found around.

Great looking Grant, Stephen.

I am in with Academy's El Alamein M3 Grant. Part started.

Dry brushing and detail painting done. I'm going to let this dry up nicely and then do a coat of future.

It's about time for me to post some pics on my (Tamiya)M8 HMC "Scott"...fast build, with some resin add-ons, hopefully the coming paint job will do it justice...





I'm going to try to wrap this puppy up this weekend...a very enjoyable build! First time resin user, I like it...

Linus, that is some great progress you've made. But the Grant never had the long 75mm barrel. Academy messed up in putting the counter weight on the long barrel. The counter weight was put on the short barrel to stabilize it in the system set up for the long barrel.

There were Grants with counter weights but not the longer gun barrel.

Finally, Jupiter was in line with Mars just long enough for me to finish my M8 Scott. Some resin details seemed to make a big difference. Thank you Michael for a very enjoyable campaign!

Hey fellas. There is some really nice work in here.

I'm going to call my Sherman complete. I was going for a new Sherman with a dusty look.










Thank you very much for putting on this campaign. I had a great time.

Cheers,
Dustin

Really looks sharp. And I agree with Clayton it does look like a museum piece.
