D-Day build – 1/48th Tamiya Sherman
March 21, 2014 in Armor
Finally got some bench time and finished the M4A1 Sherman tank (which, by the way, barely fit in the landing craft – even though they’re the same scale).
I chose not to weather heavily, as this example was meant to depict a Sherman just arriving for the assault on Normandy.
When I first discovered that many of the tracks were to be assembled as separate pieces, I was a bit apprehensive as to how they’d fit. But Tamiya being Tamiya, they went on flawlessly (even though there was some “operator error” involved which, hopefully, is hidden from view).
A light coat of flat was applied to take off the shine.
