M48 A3 Patton

This is the Tamiya model that I built in the early 1990's. I added covers to the mantlet and searchlight using brushed on dissolved plastic. I wanted to show the cast effect so brushed liquid glue on the turret and hull front then used my finger tips to add some texture. I used a soldering iron to melt some of the parts to show wear and tear.

Yes, a lot of my models are from that era; in the days before Meng, Trumpeter, Academy etc!

This one brings back memories.. A friend of my brother built this kit back then (minus the stovepipe). He wouldn't let me play with it. But judging by the state of how i left my brothers Jeep, 105 field howitzer and several german infantrymen, he was right 🙂

Thanks Wim! Luckily my brothers had grown up by this time so my models were safe!
