My Prize Easy Eight.

May 1, 2016 · in Armor · · 13 · 2K

Built exclusively for iModeler because you gave it to me, as award for December's monthly model. I was never really interested in the late war "Easy Eight" until of course, I saw "Fury". Then I was turned on to the wide track, and big muzzle-braked gun on this beast, and started on it straight away upon receiving it. It's another shake n' bake , no Tribble at all. I just roughed up the armor castings, left off two spare track links and made loose mounts, and added track link armor, Box and ammo can stowage, and a tarp. Still need a suitable tow cable though. Model Master enamels and Tamiya muds were splashed around. The figure I think has a neat action pose and looks just a bit like Brad Pitt. Got to flat coat his jacket a bit.

Now to that new Tamiya SU-76. I like shakin' and bakin'
