Super Pershing - Sort of.

Recommended Posts

This isn't a historically accurate build. I took some liberties and mated a reworked split hatch turret to a production hull.

I picked up the Tamiya Pershing and AA Super Pershing resin conversion for cheep at a swap meet. The casting texture on the AA turret was so nice (except for the pin holes that keep popping up) I had to use it. I also used the front armored plates and skipped the rest. I used a Black Dog resin set for the fender stowage and used misc. stowage and epoxy putty for the rest. The barrels are RB models, track tool and tool box handles are TMD. PE is a combo of Eduard and scratch. The tracks are Fruil and they only included two lefts so I'm a little bummed by that.

It's not technically accurate but I've been having fun with it.

Lots a neat stuff goin' on there. In the last two pictures, you can see how the M-47 turret was influence by this one.

Very cool looking. That barrel is HUGE! Looks the part. I can't wait to see some paint on it.

The weather cooperated the other weekend and I was able to get some paint on this.

I'm not looking forward to all the in situ detailing stowage painting.  Too much PE to knock off. :cry:

Great job Bryan!  That looks fantastic.  This is one armor piece that I wouldn't want to mess with.
