Academy's M51 'Isherman'; one of those off-and-on builds that often wander around my workbench. Thought I'd show it here as it's been a while since I did an AFV build.





Wasn't expecting too much from the kit, but it's surprised me. Fit is excellent, detail is very, very good for a its' time (1997). As you see it here the main construction is 90% done, just the outside main wheels to add, which I'll do after painting & weathering the rest. The enormous travel lock for the 90mm cannon has also been left-off for now to aid with painting the 'go faster stripe' over the rear deck. Planning on doing this as a 'kerbside' model, so no figures and no storage, but that might change.

Thanks for taking the time to look and please feel free to add a comment or ask a question. More progress in a few weeks - no rush.

AFN

Ian.
