I feel I have to break away from airplanes for the moment. In my "treasure chest" I found some usefull tankparts. From Italeri the hull of a M36 B1 and a T23 turret of their M4A1. With lead foil from a roovers shop I took some forms of an Academy Achilles namely the inner parts of the front bulhead and gear. A broken up kit of an Ironside HVSS tank delivered the running gear. The lead forms were backfilled with Plaster making them ready for taken a cast from them with fine artists plaster. I think this is the cheapest way to get relative rough castings adequate for tanks. These are my results: Good ole Monogram PzKw IV also deliverd some parts. The engine and sidewalls are bits and pices from cars and plastic card. The fan is a part of an Italeri M-47 left over from my M-26 built.
