Monday and back in action with this one. I added some Archer raised resin decals casting marks to the turret and hull. We shall see how they look under a coat of paint soon.

Yeah, these are for a Sherman, but most likely only a M47 fanatic would know that they are not proper for a Patton

Looks good Carlos! I wouldn't of known the difference if you didn't say anything.
March as one, Don't look back
Odin's sons... Attack!
Unleash hell! Do not repent! Warfare grants us no lament
Let your weapons slash and tear This is no place for fear
Hold the lines! Move as one! In unity our victory's won
Our shields will form a mighty wall
United we shall never fall

Thanks Clint. I need to see about getting more of these casting mark resin decals. They do add a bit of nice subtle detail for the project. Or any US tank project.

Well, another day, another update:

I found one more casting mark in some photos over the bow gunners position, so I added another casting mark decal. Some tanks had ‘em, some didn’t. But I figured why not for mine. And then later I created the dust cover for the mantlet using white glue and tissue paper.

So next I have to come up with all the little clamps that hold the dust cover in place around the edges...

I'm glad you're explaining this cause it looks like a big mess otherwise.

:lol: Yes it does look quite messy right now... and will still look somewhat messy when completed... in a different way of course. :wink:

I'll be interested to see how all this looks under some paint Carlos!

I like those casting marks.

Thanks Stuart! I’m also curious how this will look once the paint is on. New stuff to me!

Any new updates on this his one? Curious on the new decals you used.

No, no new updates yet. I’d been concentrating on the Harrier all week. I need to get back on this one.
