Nice one Woods - I did a similar thing with an M48A3 - but with a beach Umbrella over the Commanders Cupola. What you have done is spot on - not too much not to little and I like the Photo Reference as well. It gives you an idea for a model and there can be none of the "well they did not do that" or "that's not accurate" mumble. I like it!!! :woohoo:

I really like the simple layout on these dioramas, you're inspiring me. Looks the part just like the second shot. You're nailed the mud from the first shot too.

Thanks alot guys !
I really enjoyed building this one , although I should of really got hold of an after market track set for it,
Tamiya's lack of detail on the inside of the tracks is a bit of a let down, at least they wont be too hard to replace if I come across some

I thought I saw a set of replacement tracks on Hobbyeasy (AFV Club).
Where did you get the sand bags from?

Nice simple and effective. Love it. The weathering looks great especially the dusting.
