  1. If you want an extremely detailed Sherman, this kit is a must have. The price that I paid (my wife) was well worth it. There are ALOT of parts in this kit. Because I'm going to use this one with the other two that I built in a diorama, I decided to cut open the Turret and Hull so that you can see inside. So that you can see everything , I used a multi-colored mini LED set. I've never added lighting to a model before. With the help of my son, I got a crash course in soldering. The LED's that I am using have two different colors in one "bulb". White for non-tactical, Red for tactical. The contro
  2. Thanks Carlos. This one was really fun to builds
  3. This is my first time building an Asuka model. This is their M4A3. Very impressed with the level of detail. Especially the 50 cals. The assembly of the bogies took some time. (Lots of parts). The one area that was a problem, was the housings for the idler wheel attachment point (C34, and C35). You insert the idler wheel arms (C25) into C34, and C35. When I went to attach the wheel, both housings cracked in half. This was a big pain to fix. Had to use super glue and baking soda to fix it. Lastly, I am using acrylics now(Tamiya). I was a big fan of the Testor Model Master line. The two accent co
  4. Pedro, This is a very interesting build. Nice to see one of these kits completed. The way in which you have displayed it, demonstrates it’s agility. Thanks for sharing this. Looking forward to more of your work. Chris
  5. Thanks guys for the comments. This is the Tamiya kit. Went together without any issues. Chris
  6. The overall bust looks amazing. I’m drawn to the face and eyes. Fantastic job on the shading. Chris
  7. Ron, Very nice build. I’m impressed most by the paint job. 👌 Chris
  8. Carlos, It keeps getting better and better. For a kit that had little, you’ve done a amazing job dressing it up. Chris
  9. Gil, It turned out great. It looks like a lot of work. Love the paint job. Congratulations!! Chris
  10. Carlos, Looks real good. Just adding some detail like you have, makes it look so much better. Looking forward to your next update. Chris
  11. I've decided to add another tank to the diorama. 3 tanks in total. All three crews are now completed. I've got two extra figures that I will incorporate some where in it. The Fury crew is all Bravo 6 figures. The other two crews, are a mix between Tamiya, and MiniArt. The Tamiya crew is the latest release (to my knowledge) of a WW2 tank crew. The MiniArt figures have some interesting poses. It took some time to clean these up. I choose not to use the heads. I replaced them with Tamiya, Dragon, and Alpine heads. All the crew serve weapons, along with the stowage, have been divided up between
  12. At four hours, I’d still be cutting and sanding parts😂. Way to go. Chris
  13. Thanks Michael. I’ve noticed several diorama bases constructed with this, that have cracked, or shrunken. That’s the one thing I want to try and eliminate. “Cracks”. I guess I could go back and put Tamiya putty where the cracks are before I paint the base coat. I’m thinking of building a very shallow box to put the Celluclay in. Thanks again for the reply. Chris
