BJ you are moving up in the world for sure
Your finish work really shines.

One question for you or to anyone that has the answer.
Tools with wooden handles:
Was the wood left with a natural finish or painted OD?

Thanks
Tony lee

Just about every thing the US use during the war was OD, so in reality, the tools should be also. I paint them like that just to add a little detailed color variation.

Thanks for looking in, John

Thank you sir.
I've only built one Sherman type and that was a Priest. I wasn't too sure of the tools so I paint them as if the OD paint was partly worn off with the wood showing underneath.

Those Tasca kits get a lot of praise,need to get one some day and see for myself.

Thanks Again
Tony lee
