This is Tamiya's 1/35th scale M10 Tank Destroyer as depicted in a late 1944 time-frame. It's open-topped, so you get a view into the turret and fighting compartment interior. I swapped the kit-provided rubber-block tracks for the later rubber-chevron tracks from Tamiya's M4 Sherman kit. Due to the open topped nature of the vehicle, it's built and painted in layers - lower hull interior, upper hull interior, turret halves, then the exterior. There are no driver's compartment components included in the kit (not that you could see them). I used Tamiya paints for the overall Olive Drab and interior white, with an assortment of Reaper MSP acrylics, colored pencils, and chalks for the weathering. I did build up some old mud on the lower hull and rear using Tamiya's gray putty (troweled on, then stippled with an old oil painting brush). No stowage... Qs and Cs welcomed.
Welcome to part 2. This is Tamiya's 1/35 Cromwell cruiser tank, part of the British units operating in Normandy in 1944. The basic paint scheme is a combo of Mr Color acrylic lacquers and Testor's Model Master enamels followed by black oil paint general and pinpoint washes, Reaper MSP tan, brown, and red-brown washes for the basic weathering, colored pencils for the paint chipping, scratches, and rust, and earth-tone chalk pastels for the final dust coats. Pretty much the same techniques as the KV-1b posted earlier. Qs and Cs welcomed. Glen
