Gentlemen,

*** I am quite new to this forum and this is the first time I post my work here, so I am not sure if I best post it on the Braille or what-if subgroups (or both). ***

I enjoyed this one, and am quite happy with the result, even if it is only my second or third allied tank.
The markings were painted on with Stencilit masks, which allowed me to go for lo-viz markings on the side.
Thanks to Peter Bergstr÷m and Mark Deliduka for donating most of the parts of this kit. (UM chassis, Trumpeter gun barrel.)

All comments welcome.
Rob

Rob,

A well done and intriguing idea!

What kit(s) did you use? It appears to have an M3 Lee side door in the back, possibly a Stug III gun mantlet, and a Pershing barrel.

If the light gray around the mantlet is supposed to represent rubberized cloth, maybe add some sealing strips to better define it? Hopefully these images from PrimePortal give you a better idea:

A Centurion


A M47 Patton


A Centauro


But this is just a suggestion, otherwise a very well done what-if.
