Just realised I put this in the wrong place!

 

In between building my Hobby Boss 1/16 Tiger I I've been doing some other armor builds to get my weathering skills up. Here are two I just completed, the Dragon M4A3(75) ETO Sherman and the Academy M3A1 Stuart, both in 1/35th scale of course.

 

Great kits, had trouble with the Academy decals and the rubber tracks (stapled them in the end) whereas the Dragon decals were perfect (if bland) and the DS tracks an absolute joy. 

 

Dragon instructions as usual were terrible - they neglect to tell you to install an inner mantlet or where to drill holes on rear of turret for the spare MG holder....got there eventually:

 

Tamiya paints used, plus Mig/AK pigments and washes (first time doing mud!)
