A couple of Shermans

Here's a couple of US Shermans I recently painted and assembled. They were on sale at a local model shop that was closing down, & I only bought them because they were so cheap. They are Italeri Fast Assmebly kits- two in a box.
Inspired by fellow blogger Thanos' weathering efforts I have had a go at a spot of weathering on them.
Hope you like them. Many of them are quite large images, so click on 'em to get a close up :)

    1. Thanks heaps Dan, I'm glad you like them.
      The shop owners closed down the whole thing..pity.
      My friend picked up the Italeri church & stone bridge from them, I got a Hornby tree making kit & some 1/72 Italeri plastic fences- not much else there to interest me.

    1. Thanks mate, I just kind of made it up as I went along- a wash here, a splodge there, even tried flicking some wet pigment on with an old toothbrush, I enjoyed having a mess about with them.
