Tamiya Pershing

I recently read the book Spearhead, it was a fantastic read covering the experience of American and German tank crews, including the crews of the Cologne Pershing vs Panther duel. So I was motivated to build a Pershing.

That ruined out nicely Tony! You really can’t go wrong with a modern Tamiya kit like this one. Well done! :shoutout:

Spearhead is an awesome book and it throws you right into the action from page one. Well done, Tony. I'm planning on doing both tanks in the future.

Tony, she’s a beauty!

Isn't it great when a good read motivades you for some creative activity?
Very nice model, Tony. And I like that veranda, too.

Beautiful job Tony! I too read "Spearhead" and it made me look at my Pershings closer. I've always loved that tank, but that book really brought it more to life for me.
