  1. Thanks Allon, you too stay healthy. Great build, keep 'em coming my friend!

  2. Nicely done! I had looked at getting that kit a while back. Maybe after this mess is all over I will pick one up. You did a great job, I love the gear attached to the hull!

  3. Nice job as usual Allon @allonkira67. I agree with Rob, the attached gear stowage looks incredibly life like and the over all finish on the kit is superb.

    Well done!

  4. Great work, Allon. Cannot look more real!
    All the best!

  5. Nice weathering and tonal variation on the OD, Allon. I also like the look of the stowage back and front. You have reasoned out well how the mud would build up beneath the front plank that holds up stowed items. OD is a nice color to work with when doing mud and wear effects. Yours are very realistic. Do you find the Mig Filters easy to use? They seem to have become the standard, now. I haven't gone that route yet and I use oil washes and layered airbrushing of very thinned counter tones to weather. My Char B this week shows the alternate method.

  6. Allon, I ordered this kit on Amazon and it hasn't arrived yet! I'm loosin it because hobby shops are 'non-essential' and my stash was depleted. Could you please disassemble and forward to me ASAP. Great looking product. I'll remember this post and do my best to copy.

  7. The work on the cast iron chipping is impressive; I love it 🙂
    This Sherman rocks! Bravo!
