Toon Tanks



M4A3 Sherman


A couple of years ago I bought some Toon Tanks and was going to build them out of the box but I never got around to them. One was a M4A1 Sherman.
(Model finished 2020)




After have seen several Sherman's built I felt like doing something different to it. I took a spare 1/72 hull top and removed plastic at three points as I needed a different angle at the front and rear and it needed to be shorter.




Now the hull has more scars than the Frankenstein monster but I will be able to hide many of them.



But the shape is coming along.



Wooden planks on the hull sides and 1/35 scale track links on the turret. As one of the rubber band tracks broke I decided to use the resin tracks instead.



Started to paint the Sherman but then the mojo went away.



I just needed to paint the tracks when it went to sleep




But it got finished as an Iwo Jima tank at last.






T-34/75


The other one I had bought was a T-34/76
(Model finished 2020)



My first thought was to make a T-34/85 from it, then I thought about a SU-100 but in the end I decided to go out of the box.




I managed to get some paint on the T-34 as well.




Then it laid idle for a long time before I decided that I should finish it.





A Panther that IS pink


Even though I like eggplanes I wasn't going to build a Panther tank but....
(Model finished 2020)




OK. I have to confess that the idea isn't mine. I stole it from a build at the IPMS Stockholm forum.





I just had to build it as the idea was so much better than the one I had for a 1/72 kit. But the original build look better than mine.
