PSC 15mm Shermans

Figured I need to post some pictures.  It has been a while.  PSC Sherman's are easy to build. Now with all the different version one can do a little mixing and match of parts. 

The Sherman where paints with a mix of Tamiya Olive drab(XF-61) and Tamiya dark yellow
(XF-60) at a ratio of 60:40.  This give a pretty good match to the original Olive used on the American Sherman during WW2.    Used this as a base coat which after I added some white to make for the high lights.  The area under the stars where coated with future floor. After the stars dried over night I put another coat over the complete tank. I found this will help cut down on the wear from handling the tank.  Next I put a pin wash over the tank in black.  Follow by weather will mud coat.  The final coat was testors dullcoat.

The above  M4A1 76mm Sherman's are done in the black and olive drab by the 2nd and 3rd armor division for operation cobra. Paint using the same process as discussed early. 

On my work bench are some firefly, M4A3's and some conversion to Mid production with some depot rebuild Sherman.  Hope to have those posted soon..
