Finished ✅ 1/48 Tamiya Easy Eight M4A3E8

I’ve posted a few figures, even a Jeep, but I’ve not painted an actual tank for what must be 30 years or more.

I made this totally out of the box (‘for an online competition that stipulated it must be OOB).
I did add some details….but they were all added from stretched sprue or carved sprue number tags from the box, so still OOB, right?

Painted using AK Real Colors, weathered using some very old oil paints and enamels, and pigments.


Well, it doesn’t show. Brilliant job all around mate, well done!

That’s just a beautifully finished model. I don’t care if it’s OOB - all the details are there. But the paint, the mottling, burnishing, streaking, dirt, staining, it’s all done to perfection. Outstanding model!

Great looking Sherman. Well done.


Great job.
