IDF Sherman Target Tank - Finished

Hello again fellow Styrene addicts,

Here is my latest model. A photo of an old Israeli field modified vehicle inspired my to scratch build a 1/72 version of it. I used the Trumpeter 1/72 kit and scratch build the rest using plastic. It was a lot of fun even if it added up to at a whopping 130 hours of work spread over roughly 6 months. Thanks for all you who posted comments and who followed the build the entire time. I apologize for the dark pictures… the lighting sucked. Anyways, enjoy.

Until next build…

Roy you goofball!

Good to see you are still roaming around here. Thanks for the comments.

Yeah we had a great time at the Nats. I am not sure if I will go next year. That's a long trip... but I will see when we get closer.
