I finished off a batch of T34's, Emchas and a single Lee at the weekend for What a Tanker!

They are a combination of Armourfast, Pegasus and Hasegawa with Armourfast tracks added instead of the kit bits:


I'm now onto the Panzerwaffe, with some PSC Mark IV's and Armourfast Stugs, amongst other things. I've already done some Tigers, a Panther and a Jagdpanther.

Very Nice Work!

Nice work. Constructive comments – I like the rust on the tracks but dry brush in bare metal where they contact the road. Also mud and dust in the suspension would look great on these models. Mud and dirt accumulate in and around the track and road wheels. Try some pigments for that.

Just got my Jagdpanther! I really need to find a way to beat that brute!!!

Overall very nice. Not to pile on but the tracks on both the M3 and M4 models are the Type 51 rubber block track. The only rust would be on places like the metal end connectors. The track block itself would be a dirty black color.

Nicely done !

I thought about some mud weathering but I'm not keen on pigments. Maybe a bit more wet brushing? The tracks were the last thing I did and we're a bit rushed so I will go back and add the rubber blocks, although being Armourfast they aren't actually moulded on the models.
