Stalled on the Panzers as everything has taken years. So just needed a speed makeover to clear the head.
The base is Heng Long’s 1:16 M4A3 105mm. The basic shape is fine to start with, but the rest is basic too. The list of scratched and adjusted parts is long, but it was fun getting everything together in a matter of two weeks. I’ve even tried to paint the figure. Hopeless at figures, but found this fun. On with some engine bays now.
The spare tracks were scratched to match the replacement metal ones. The HL ones are just hopelessly wrong. The new metal ones are usually found on Commonwealth supplied Shermans, but it wasn’t impossible to see them on US ones too. These come with great duck bills. Beautiful tracks. The drive cogs were widened to fit them and the rear rollers were widened and the rubber tyre mouldings on them filled in.
Repeat shot with the tracks in all their muddy metal glory
