Aurora/Monogram Sherman

April 1, 2016 · in Armor · · 16 · 2.2K

This is Monograms reissue of 's M-4 , it came in a combo kit with Monograms 1/48 Fw-190.
Being not much of an armor guy I wasn't sure how to detail it, Having lost the decal sheet, I was going to try for the tank from the movie Fury, but I got lazy. Instead with the recent passing of Keith Emerson of ELP , I named the tank after the album Tarkus. I know this is a little out there but what the heck.

  1. Not bad...not bad - now for a little (or a lot) application of weathering powders if ya got 'em and you'll be good to go. Remember, unless they just rolled outta the factory, tanks ain't clean. The build itself looks good.

    • Gotcha and thanks, but it just came off the lot... Maybe I'll practice with this one. Got an old Bandai M-13 halftrack in my stash, like to do it up right.

  2. Nice (gettit?) tribute to a fine musician! I saw him play a couple of times, really outstanding. Now get to work with those weathering powders.

  3. [Gotit] ,Saw them in Norfolk Va. I think 1977. Have to work on the weathering otherwise I'd have make a diorama of a factory ugh !

  4. Nice Robert, Tanks are cool, and you've done a good job on building this. I think it would look good in a little display case in an office or den !

  5. Needs to be dirty it's armour .
    Nice build but needs mud hehehe

  6. Just came off the wash rack, there's gonna be an inspection!

  7. Nice work. I built all of those Aurora kits when I first got into modeling. Loved them. Thanks for sharing.

  8. Got the M-109 Paladin , it's basically done, not sure how to finish it.

  9. Actually I think 'Tarkus' works for a Sherman!
