Oddball captured Russian Lend Lease SPG: SU-57

In the Panzer Wrecks 5 book, a photo of an abandoned SU-57 appeared. It was the US-made, 6pdr-armed half-track, given to the Red Army. This photo showed it in late war German 3-tone scheme and was also the subject of a Bison Decals offering. I started with the DML M3/M3A1 Half track and Italeri 6pdr gun. In hindsight, I should have used the DML M3 75mm GMC. I'm at the point of camo painting currently. Hoping to have it done for the 2012 AMPS convention in late April and an upcoming magazine article. Comments and questions welcome!

Roy,

When you wrote oddball, I thought of the one captured (M3 75mm GMC) in Tunisia from the Germans:

Very Nice.

Wow! Great job and I'm very happy to see your latest build here on plannetarmor.

Some excellent scratch-building additions with the vehicle.

Looking forward to further updates here on planetarmor.

Take care.

AWD

My base coat is down. Time for more weathering and detail painting. Can't wait to put on decals!
