In a brief break from OO gauge commissions (I'm loco'd out), I opted to start another build, rather than finish of the Shack AEW.2. So I opted for the LCM & Sherman kit in my stash.
Surprisingly in the 40 years of modelling this marks the first tank I've built and only the second boat or ship..
First off the Ronson (as they were known by their crew's - due to their habit of going kaboom) - I know it's an old tooling, but once you clean away the flash it goes together extremely well, with only a minor amount of filling..
Filling aside, the only other issue is gettting the tracks to weld together.
The LCM is a fairly straight-forward build, a lot of flash needs removing and some filling is required - to be expected of older tooling..
..though the Sherman seems happy
Nearly ready for some paint - I hadn't glued the flooring in at this point (saves masking).
Top colour applied - Vallejo Model Air 71.051 Neutral Grey, is a good match for Humbrol 64 Matt Light Grey. Flooring was painted with Vallejo 71.080 Rust (Humbrol 113 Matt Rust), once dry was glued into place..
I then masked up and painted the hull underside - again using 71.080..
More to come, but that's for another day..
