Well, I`ve begun painting... it`s turning out very nicely! I mixed about 3 parts `ocher yellow`with 2 parts `real brown`and one part white acrylics. Nice tan colour emerges.

Still hunting for some detailed British units in North Africa that used the M4A1 76mm. I`ll keep digging.

So from this..

Strato`s Sherman Photo110

Into this!

Strato`s Sherman Photo112

Im pretty happy so far.

Mechanically, SLU, Mato 3:1 2.0`s, and stock tracks. Used the airsoft barrel, as it is pretty much the same size and shape as the 76mm.

More pics to come Smile

I like the colour, but shouldn't it be more yellow. Wink Smile

Did you put a casting effect on the hull? It looks like there is in the picture.

Derek, I did use the surfacer a little bit. Also my method of painting adds some really nice texture too.

I use a fairly stiff painters art brush and dab the entire surface, so no brush strokes. It's very effective.

In certain light and at certain angles I can almost see the yellow coming through! What I really want is some nice rusty Testors enamel paint, that stuff works wonders.

it looks good.

Have you decided if you are going with British or Canadian markings yet?

I took out the 'fancy' digital cam for some detailed pictures.

You can see where I got lazy! I might just do the underside of the hull in mud or dirt brown, it worked nicely on my PnzIII.

M2 machine gun, was fun to paint something like this.

Some of the casting effects, mix of Mr Surfacer & painting.

Im still looking for some good examples, but I'm leaning more with the Brits, as they had the first M4A1s in N. Africa with this colour, as far as I know. Unless some units made it into Italy with the desert tan... I know at least one South African unit did!

So, in honour of Stince's fantastic Sherman, I've gone ahead and totally copied his markings Smile Perhaps we have the first pair of any tanks in the club to be of the same unit!

Awsome! Cool

We'll be the first club to field an all Canadian Sherman platoon. cheers
And I even found out why my emitter wasn't working. I had it plugged into the apple backwards. Embarassed
But it's firing now!

sasgrunt from RCU has a habit of sending me random stuff when I need it, and this time I got a bunch of little tank doo-dads to decorate with!

They're from a couple 21st Century 1/18 Shermans, but they fit nicely here. I've also fitted a few items to my Panzer & Tiger, albeit slightly less.

Hey all! Ive had a busy couple of days... I got my new US Clark board, and spent the day / night installing it in my Sherman!

Redid the entire idler support system, and I now have recoil, along with all the other Clark goodies.

Last battle meet, I powered up my sherman, and it was a dead duck. Did a little troubleshooting, narrowed it down to the SLU board itself acting up. I couldn't get it to do squat.. funny enough the ESC is fine on it.

When I last put the sherman away, it was fine.. I really have no idea why the board quit. I could sometimes get sounds out of it, never any motor drive.. it would randomly start turning the turret or engage a single track.. then stop.

Ke is looking at it now, I hope to have it back soon. It'll probably go into a NEW sherman Wink

That's weird! scratch

I use to have a problem with my Tiger, the turret would start turning on it's own, but it only did it on Battledays.
Turns out when I would turn it on, it was picking up other frequency from other members.
After I rebind it, it's been find.

Hopefully Ke can fix it, you did say you wanted to build a Grizzly. Very Happy
