Sherman Update!

After Airbrushler put the first coat of paint on notice some imperfections and tweeking that needed to be done. So it was back to the body shop for some fill and sanding, then back to the painter!

Hoping to get back Saturday to start putting the SLU in, with good luck, should have ready for the next battle day. Very Happy

You got the wrong guy, Hulu.

You'll have to tell that to the other half of the dynamic duo from Windsor.

Small Update!

Haven't had a chance to work on the Sherman since the last Battleday, but I thought I would post some pictures of some stuff I did before.

The tools on the back with the wooden handles are made from actual wood. Th handles for the sledgehammer and shovel made from toothpicks, and the handle for the axe is carved form a Popsicle stick. Very Happy

Stince's Sherman - Page 3 IMG_0777


I also inserted clear Mylar in the periscope and the opens around the commanders hatch to resemble glass, not sure if they should be tinted.

Stince's Sherman - Page 3 IMG_0776

Stince's Sherman - Page 3 IMG_0774


Also, I want to thank Airbrushler for painting the tank, markings and the special logo on the side. Thanks Man! Very Happy

Stince's Sherman - Page 3 Cobra-43



I still have a few more things I still want to do, so this build is not done yet.

It was surprisingly easy, especially if you have toothpicks the right size. Very Happy

Thanks Strato!

I'm sure your will turn out nice too.

I love what you've been doing with your WWI tank, keep us posted on the progress of it. Can't wait to see it going across the battlefield.

Today I built and installed a metal tow cable for the Sherman.

I found a wire cable in my garage the other day, so I cut it down to the desire length and made some end pieces. Then a quick spray with some cameo green Krylon paint.

Stince's Sherman - Page 3 DSC10031


After I had the cable made, I had to figure out how to attach it.

Now this may sound silly, but the idea I came up with was "ZIP-TIES"!

I gave the the smallest zip-ties I had a spray of the same paint.

Stince's Sherman - Page 3 DSC10035


Using a Dremel I widen the holes that held the cheap plastic cable, so the zip-ties could fit though.
Once I had the zip-ties though, I pulled it tight and it fit nice snug along the hull.

Correct you are. You certainly got that part right. I think the tank looks awesome and turned out so very realistic in the pics. Guess what Airbrushler, what you have seen on the web site, is not even half of the pics I actually took...lol Couldn't flood the web site with one tank.

Looking at the new cable install...looks awesome and brilliant idea on the zip ties...actually looks like you spent a ton of time on the mounting, in the pics...very realistic. Job well done.

Thanks Ian! Embarassed

I wanted to do the best I could on this build as it's a tribute to my Grandfather who had passed away a year ago.
