Dragon M4A1 (76)W VVSS 1/72

April 14, 2015 in Armor

Hello imodelers, here is my first “roll out” for 2015. Its Dragons M4A1 kit in 1/72. One of the best kits, i have seen so far. Great details and quite easy to build.
It was build from the box, the only additions were done on the engine deck. Some stowage, replacement wheels and a self made tarpulin, from a paper towel were added.
Weathering was done with simple acrylics, thinned with Revells acrylic cleaner. Works better than the usual thinner.
Hope you like this one !

  1. Great weathering, Bernd. A real punchy looking model.

  2. Thanks Rob, the Sherman has a strange look but its an interesting vehicle and as an aircraft guy, it had a radial engine….

  3. Wonderfully done, sir…..all around great work in every respect.

  4. Nice work Bernd, 1/72 scale?
    Subtle weathering too.
    Well done mate.

  5. The weathering and finish are really great, Bernd, it looks much bigger than 1/72.

  10. Brendan,
    This is stunning. You did a magnificent job on this. I really like the cast hull Sherman.

  11. Bernd, Nicely done. I would have never guessed it was 1/72 scale. Your photography work looks good too.

    • Thank you Terry, the photo session was done on our laundry dryer in the garden, on a colored piece of cardboard.
      Dragons M4 series in 1/72 is amazing, the level of detail is really high.

  12. Awesome mate! You have a way with these tanks!
