M24 Chaffee

A bloody awful Tamiya reboxing of an older Italeri kit from the 1980's. They've thrown in a cheap metal barrel, as well as provided one of the two identical sprues from their WW2 "Allied Accessories" set as stowage items and replaced the M2 machine gun.

This one fought me every step of the way.
I'd not recommend it, and given the current retail price would advise getting the much more recent AFV Club kit instead.

I like the end product, it was worth the fight. Oils for weathering?

Thanks Brian and Neuling 🙂

@ Brian. Yes, a combination of Italeri Acrylic for the base coat of olive drab, followed up with Tamiya dark brown panel liner and MiG oil brushers and assorted pigments.
