From MilesR: 28mm Sherman Tank (15 points)



From Miles:
I got a chance to finish up a 28mm Sherman tank in between helping my son mill parts for the new robot design - if only I could turn metal shavings into 28mm miniature soldiers!
This is a Warlord model of a US Sherman tank (M4-A1) and will become part of my Bolt Action US force.   The model was OK but had a lot of flash.  
I'll likely add some sand bags or other stowage but wanted to get the "finished" model in as the days of the painting challenge are waining.

Great work Miles! The weathering looks very good (and you can also add the extra stowage later).

This fine Sherman will give Miles 15 points, bringing him ever-closer to his 1K target...

  2. Nice model. I really like how you did the weathering. Dirty but not caked in it. Nice effect.

  5. Thanks
    The weathering is a combination of a very light dry brush of Valejo rust and some "mud" applied with a Tamiya weathering pencil
