    M4A3 105 dozer

    Thanks guys! FF I really went all out on this and tried new methods. It seems to have paid off. I have been looking at the AK line and I like what I see. The Academy kit wasn't bad, just an older tool. Having built lots of DML Shermans, my spares box was ready. Thank you Moritz! G
  2. I had not yet added the antenna when these pics were taken. G

    M4A3 105 dozer

    This is the Academy M4A3 105 with dozer blade. I used a few spare DML parts and scratchbuilt some to get the look right. Paint it Tamiya with oil and enamels for weathering. I have a photo of the real tank at the Chosin Resevoir in December 1950. At that time the dozer blade and .50 were not mounted. I think I have done the kit and the subject justice. G
  4. You know you live in St Louis if you have ever worn shorts and a parka, at the same time. Born raised and worked my whole career in "the 'Lou". There's a reason I moved to the Mojave desert Weather, specifically the lack of humidity. G
  5. I'm very glad that worked well for you! Tamiya Buff is one of those colors you cannot go without. G
  6. 81 here today.................... G
  7. What theatre are you modelling? Afrika Korps Kubels weren't "sand" as such. There were two distinct camo schemes for the tropics. Of course if you don't care about that, Tamiya "Buff" is a good sand color right from the bottle. :D G
  8. RIP baby sister, and the thin blue line again fades to black. G
  9. They most likely started out as unstained varnished wood. I use Tamiya Buff or Deck Tan with a coat of clear orange over that to replicate freshly varnished wood. I think a deck tan base, with a wash of medium gray will give you the bleached and weathered appearence you want. G
  10. Anything in the interior which could even remotely be seen from the air would be the same color as the exterior of the vehicle. My opinion is the museum piece is wrong, because if you look at the rear of the vehicle it too is painted white or off white which is completely wrong. The back open areas of half tracks are painted like the exterior. Starowka would most certainly have been dark yellow overall, and given the photos I believe a green pattern is correct. In this old film green and red brown can be seen as seperate colors as the red brown will look marginally darker. These pics, to me
  11. I refer this as a Dodge for a chosen few. G
  12. Getting closer. I spent the morning painting the TC. G
  13. Thanks all. I went for the "used but not abused" look as none of these queens lasted long enough to be totally worn out. Ro-Gar the decals do not look like that in person, I don't understand why they look silvered in the photo. The area where I placed the name and serial number had a thin coat of future brushed on before hand. I had flat coated the tank prior to the photo as well. The kit decals were strange anyway. The turret flashes acted as if they wouldn't conform to the surface at all, yet grudgingly accepted Micro-Sol and settled in. Then they didn't want to stick. If I do this a
  14. Here's proof I build something other than Sherman's! Tamiya's Matilda II (newer release) painted with Floquil and MM enamels. Not quite finished. G
  15. If Live Resin will be producing an M2, it will definately be worth waiting for it. G
  16. Tasca has an excellant M2 and M1919 offered in an accessory set. While they are WWII era, the M2 hasn't changed appearence much at all. G
  17. While if differs a bit from state to state, the defination of Robbery involves the use of force to take something from someone. Robbery in the second degree, which is what these miscreants were charged with, runs the gamut from: I shove you and take your wallet to: I beat you bloody and take your wallet. Use of a weapon, or the implication of it's use, constitutes Robbery First Degree. Now it could be argued at some point that these guys are weapons in and of themselves. That will fly if say it can be proved a person is proficient in mixed martial arts, martial arts and or boxing. Just bei
  18. I'm calling this finished. G
  19. I'm nearly ready to call this one finished. A flat coat, some dust and it will be complete. G
