Re: Cologne Panther Killer gets Bronze Star 75 years later

I read the book Spearhead and highly recommend it. Glad he was finally given the Bronze star.

Re: FOV rouses itself from slumber...!!!

That is a lot of Shermans. However the next to the last picture labeled as M4A3 76mm hvss is actually a photo of a M4A2 (twin desiel) 76mm hvss in use by the Soviet Army. I wouldn't mind seeing them release a correct Soviet Sherman.

Re: WW1 1/48 collection

Nice collection of planes. I always thought my Father had a lot of 1/48 WWI planes but I only found 3 or 4. The looked like 1960 or earlier models. Not as beautiful as yours.

Re: How does your collection grow?

I purchase items off Ebay. I have found a couple of mostly complete Shermans at thrift stores. I buy parts to modify from the talented aftermarket venders both here and on Ebay. Sadly my Father passed away several yeas ago and I now have his collection.

Re: 1/32 B-24!

I inherited my fathers 1/48 bombers. I was surprised how big the B24 he built was. I can't imagine the size a 1/32 will be. If all his 1/48 were 1/32, I would need another storage locker.

Neat project. Looks good so far. The Marines have been needing something like that for some time.

Re: Any Interest In The M-36 Jackson ?

Are you making a completely new hull or just some changes to the addons to the upper hull? I would prefer you leave off the armored cover over the turret opening. Most of the photo also show the 90mm without the later muzzle brack. The WWII version did not have the bow MG. That was added to the M36 ...

Re: Finally Done - Hobby Boss FW-190A5 Kit, Josef Priller, J

Very nice. Great photographs also. I have only built 2 or 3 1/72 aircraft in my time. I just don't think I could handle a 1/18. That's why I like building tanks. If you may an error, just cover it up with mud or dirt. lol

Re: Revisit-M-10 - Wirble - DAP -Replacement Main Helo Rotor

I don't know about how the rest of the M10 hull fits on the 21st lower hull, but the main problem is the lower part of the 3 piece transmission cover doesn't match the upper solid transmission cover. That could be resolved by with a putty or some type of filler and shaping a new lower transmission c...
