Damn nice job.How did you get the chipped paint look?
I just used a pin to dab it on, coupled with a bit of drybrushing.
One thing I like about tanks is that you can really go nuts with the weathering
As for the mistake, if you look closely you'll see that the suspension bars are on back-to-front
If you want to build a jeep, choose this one. Its great!
Nice attention to detail.I really like the M1 Carbine.
I think what you're referring to is the BAR.
There is a M1 Carbine on the back seat...
I see it now.
The BAR looks badass too!
Thanks! One post one weapon?
There is a Garand, and a .50 too...
About my W.I.P. - I am working the figures yet. I added them in the Tiger as proof, I need to work more with the Commanders. I am thinking in to add more figures.
I finished the tracks and the spare tracks were mounted in the Turret. The following step: washes!!!
Nice job.They'll love that over at FSM.

I quess no turrit either ... lol
I can't wait to see this one finished.I love the camo.
my italeri puma scale 1/35
here is my puma, almost OOB, just added more antennas, by dragon, to make a command vehicle, just need to start painting it!!!!!
These look really good. I never got into models could you tell me how much it would to cost to start?
mm, that is a hard one
coz you need paints, brushes, tools ,solvents, spare parts and most important the model!!!!

Start off with something fairly inexpensive.Buy the basic colors for the model chosen,some glue and brushes and then get building.You could get started for under twenty bucks I would imagine.Like any hobby,it can get expensive.How much you spend is up to you.
one thing for sure, do not expect success at the first try,many of the modelers in this forum have years in modeling, me started at 14 y.o. but seriously in the last 8, you will need references for your models, book magazines , so is not that easy but is worth the try, in any case good luck if you decide start modeling, and do not hesitate to ask anything, that's why we have this section
I agree, don't get frustrated when things don't work out quite right. Modeling is a combination of talent and learned skill. Oh, and patience (something I keep running low on).
Also, like stated before, get a simple kit and the basic colors of paint. No need to shoot for the moon on your first few tries. When you go to the hobby shop don't be all macho and get the biggest thing there. They will have kits for beginners and sometimes have a starter set that will come with some various colors of paint, brushes, knife, glue and mat.
I think the best kits to start with are late WW2 and Korean War fighter planes of the US Navy and USMC in 1/72 scale. Mainly because they are solid dark blue so painting is easy. Also, these kits don't contain a lot of complicated parts. Something like a Corsair or Panther or Bearcat. There are also some snap together models that don't use glue but still have decals and need paint. These generally lack any sort of real detail but are hard to screw up and could be a great choice for your very first tank model.
After building a few, if you like it you can get a couple of how-to books for modelers that have all sorts of techniques on how to build better models.
