    You've done a fantastic job on the weathering and the worn paint on the footplate. This is really a superb job. Well done!

    Great attention to detail on that one. I agree with the others with your talent with the weathering effects.

    Excellent detail. Can't wait for my son to get a bit older so we can build models together. It seems many kids today lack the patience, or interest for that matter. Thankfully, there are still specialty hobby stores as the major toy retailers don't carry models anymore.

    Thank you again very much, it is away again to honor my grandfather and his service to our GREAT COUNTRY! GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!! Question I plan to dust the model and possibly add mud to the tracks, should I just leave it as is? Oh, and for the 50cal. Missing from the TD, my wife's cat not my cat picked it up from the table and I have not been able to find it. #{*{^>|€ cat!!!! Marty

    A fantastic job..and a wonderful way for the youth to begin their journey in the study of history. I started out the same way..and was always intrigued by the Ardennes offensive. The tanks and the locations all throughout western Europe. Regards Larry

    Tamiya make a 1/35 US WW2 weapons set that includes a couple of .50 cals and a variety of other things like the 60mm mortar, flame thower, bazooka etc-a cheap set to buy and good for adding background.

    Marty, your wife doesn't own a cat. People own dogs, but no-one owns a cat. Cats do as they please, whereas a dog does as its told.
