  1. It has been a little while since I have been able to get to the bench. Finally went to visit my mother (have not seen her in a year and a half), started running after work and then took some time and went on a mini-vacation. The good thing about the vacation is that I cam across and M4A1 76mm HVSS, what luck. Not an M4A3 but allows for some good pictures. Below are few pictures of the Sherman. Worked perfectly as I started on the suspension. Put all 6 together and test fitted the wheels on one. I plan on leaving the wheels off until after the base paint is applied. I believe I will be
  2. Thank you. Once I get the cabling done the I think I can start to paint some of the pieces. Painting the interior is making me nervous. Going to use AK Real colors off white. Seems to be a warmer white. Tim
  3. Thank you. Hopefully I can get the commanders side wall area done this week. Tim
  4. thanks Rob. It is 1/35 scale. My fingers cause more parts to go flying than the tools. Tim
  5. Still working on the turret interior. Added detail to the elector motor for the traversing mechanism and the gunners hydraulic handle. Side wall wiring continues. Wiring is not glued to the control box. It will be easier to paint the control box separately and then glue it to the wall. Then I can glue the cables to it. that is it for now. Tim

Most are not glued in yet as I am still working on the wiring. You can see some of the wiring starting at the bottom of the picture. Added details to the bottom of the turret control box. You can see the connections on the actual photo. Also added detail to the manual traverse handle. that is it for the week. Not as productive as I would like to have been. Tim
  8. More work this week. Finished the hydraulic lines around the traverse mechanism. I was not sure where the cable from the manual firing pedal went to, so I decided to put the gun mount together and maybe I could find where it leads to (I think I found it). Pictures are of the gun mount assembled as well as the underside and with parts disassembled for easy painting. Added a plate at the bottom of the counter weights to the recoil guards as the actual photos show this. It is a good thing as the bottom of the counter weights was not pretty. Added detail to the telesco
