Hi all,

 

Like a challenge so I joined a 48 hour group build the other weekend, and decided to go for a Tamiya 1/48 Sherman "Easy Eight". First time ever I built a tank. And first time in a time limited group build. The part count was a little .... high for a 48 hour build. But the kit is just great.

See the result here:

And the build here:

Tamiya 1/48 armor kits are perfect for “speed builds”. And since US tanks usually have just an overall OD scheme that makes them an ideal choice as well. Less time spent on changing colors in the airbrush cup. Yours turned out very nicely!

Thank you Stikpusher, and yes I'm quite satisfied. And glad I didn't have to do a three color camo on top of everything else. And sure the Tamiya 1/48 line seem to be amazing, you shake the box and it's almost done (except for all those wheels that needs tidying up and painting lol. )
