    Hi all,
    I had a side project which was a Sherman VC in 1/35 scale. Now that one is almost finished it’s back to the miniature figures. The work on a scale model is more time consuming and after spending 3 Months of building, PE, metal tracks, painting and weathering it was Nice to paint a buste to this stage in 7 hours.

    I used vallejo acryls for the face and helmet and Tamiya clear and floss for the goggles

    I have to make some transitions smoother but it main part is done

    Sorry I'm late on this one Martin. This is coming along extremely well. With each completed project your technique is quickly improving and your style is now very recognisable. I agree with your comments re building AFVs - I get fed up when it comes to assembling all those track links:eek:

    Tanker jacket is a good colour Martin. Collar lining varied by manufacturer, from OG through to brown. Coming along nicely.

    I love the Sherman - you have done a superb job on it. Ryefield are good kits - I've got their Egyptian T-34/122 SPG in the stash. Back in the day, while I was in the Reserves, I fired a Carl Gustav 84mm AT at some Sherman hulks on Imber ranges. It did more damage to me than it did to them:LOL:
