Here’s my completed Tamiya M551. Only issue with the kit is the guy building it…other than that, fantastic kit. Used their aftermarket barrel / screens which really is a must have.
Very nice… especially with the figures!
you’ve done a great job on that sheridan, did the accessories on the back of the turret come with the kit?
No, they’re primarily from various other projects. Most of it are parts from the Legend M113 and M48A3 stowage sets.
Looks great, may I ask what paint/color you used? I’ve got a few post war vehicles to paint and I’m stressing about what color to use
It was AMMO by Mig’s Post-WWII Olive Drab
I have the kit in stash and the Barrel in the mail. Your looks great.
Thank you, I’ll check their paint line out
Beautiful job. The weathering is just right and the figures are outstanding.
Many thanks for that
Very Nice job , the crew looks fantastic !
nice! your figures look great, the TC’s features are very nicely portrayed and the loader’s (?) helmet looks better than any I’ve tried to paint, well done! I’m a huge fan of the Sheridan and hate that is has such a bad 'rep, I feel like it wasn’t deployed or used in a role it was best suited for . . .
Nicely done, and I agree about the figures and the weathering of the vehicle - outstanding!
Nicely done! What unit is this vehicle supposed to belong to? I see the cavalry guideon on the hull - maybe 11th ACR?
Kit decals, but if I recall it’s a 25ID track (since I live in Hawaii, makes sense to do the local boys). Not sure what sub unit it is offhand
Roger that for the home boys! I just wonder if Tropic Lightning had any cav units back in the day. I suppose a search for a TO&E might reveal an answer.
It should be marked for 3rd sqdrn 4th cavalry attached to 25th ID.
Just looked that up…yup, 3/4 CAV 25ID.
