Kerry's M-4 / M-51 Sherman

Post by pickelhaube » Thu Dec 24, 2015 7:14 am

Long time collector Kerry has been wanting me to do this custom for about 3 years now. So I finally bucked up and got it out to him .

He wanted it heavy on the weathering but I just do NOT like caked on mud on my wheels and tracks so this is the results .

I am quite happy with the way it came out .

:D

Great job Matt. I like the quad conversion. Reminds me of the Canadian Skink with it's 20mm anti aircraft guns or the M3 with a Quad 45.

Fantastic work Matthew. You have previously said your finishing skills were average - this is yet another example that your finishing skills are right up there with the best!!!!

Thank you Paul and guys .

This is my first custom that I took all of the way , other than a generic paint job.

It was lots of fun to do and it is my next step forward in customizing XD
