Something British... at work!


Drinking tea!
The Boiling Vessel is a distinctive feature of British vehicles and the envy of the world! Though we have ore the milk in the American's walk in fridges....

Good to see work on this, we will need helmets with and without heads. I must have a look at  Warrior 183.

Large hatch hull (no cut out on rear plate)?

Lots of complex curves.

3
Nice job.

Good idea on fixing the crew to the breech.

Is that a release on the right side of the breech?

4
Well done.

I have used Citadel Agrax Earthshade and the camoshade on them, earthshade for the grubbier ones.

Company B used to do an upgrade kit for Abram's later Thunderbolt, now they just do the kit.

The M4A4, or the Sherman with the lengthened hull. Another important version, I agree! However, a plastic M4A4 (Sherman V) kit is available to us. It is made by PSC for Warlord Games, and while it might not be of Rubicon Models excellence, it is still a pretty good plastic model kit, and so much better than any resin kit.
I have two each of the two Sherman Vs (though only one finished and one under construction):

The only major version of the Sherman tank missing from the list is the M4A1 Sherman. You know, the one with the fully cast, rounded upper hull that actually went into production first.
All depends on your point of view, the M4A4 is more important than the others - at least for my interests (and we all remember Pinky's opinion on the currently available options).

I fully understand Our Gracious Hosts' timetable for the M4A4 due to the extensive changes required.

The kit above shows two sights, one through the front of the turret, the other periscopic.

Certainly going to need to be careful about mixing of interior detail and crew.

To me, these photos emphasise the fact that the model is a solid lump of resin.  The lack of windows and an interior is very obvious in this scale.
True, but it is possible that Rubicon will put the improved resin methods of the Waffentrager kit to good use and do cars that offer interiors.

My choice of colour can be blamed on the Flames of War rules that came with their starter set a while back (I think I downloaded them from their site). The British tank instructions were PSC spray British tank green or Vallejo Russian Uniform Green.

As Ripley mentioned, washes and shades can alter the colour drastically, my Shermans and the M5A1 used PSC British tank green and the Studebaker and the T34 used Humbrol Dark Green.

... Vallejo Brown Violet (seriously weird name for a green paint!).
Ah, you should try Improved Engine Green for misleading or odd colour names:

First bit of detailing of the Waffentrager's breech assembly.

I loosely fitted the breech guard before gluing the spent round buffer (it probably has a proper name) to the breech. I then glued both ends of the guard and cut off the tag end flush(ish) with the bottom of the buffer.

I need to assemble the pivot into the turret before I try adding the sights etc.

Not so much work in progress, but more future work.

In addition to the resin and figures, there was also this at Salute. Slowly catching up.
