Shalom.

Good luck with your build.

It'll be interesting to see how this goes together compared to my Academy version. I'll be watching this build closely.

Cheers

Hi Jack:

A good looking base to start with. Now comes all those wheels Rolling Eyes . Is it going to be a green one, or are you going to put another color on top of the green?

Thanks Gary! I start with a dark color and start shading up from there.









Along with shading I do oil washes and dry brushing.

All the road wheels are done on one side. Still have some shading and washing to do, but almost done with wheels.

Shalom.

I should join in with me Academy M-51. This would almost be a sub-group build of M-51 tanks then.

I'm watching these M-51 builds with a lot of interest.

Wheels are pretty much done for now. I've been adding some details to the upper hull such as grab handles, lock hasps, gas cap chains and locks.
