Hi all
Here's my latest build. It's the M4A1 from Dragon Models, with some extras from the spare box.
Hope you like it, and please do comment.
Jacob

Nice! I like the loader's hand buttoning up (or opening) his hatch.

Terrific build. The finish is amazing. You really should do a tutorial on how you finish your armor kits.

Very nice. Great paint/finish. How did you make the tarp?

Love it! I particularly like how you have made a single colour vehicle interesting to look at with expert weathering - also keen to know how you have done the tarp!

Absolutely beautiful build, and exceptional detailing. I have this kit in the stash, and have a specific build in mind. However, I'm wondering about your choice of camouflage. My understanding is these M4A1 (76mm) Shermans were delivered for Operation Cobra in an OD/black camouflage scheme (which I don't particularly like). Did you have a reference for this vehicle in a different scheme?
