Hi everyone I'd like to participate in this group build with the Italeri 1:56 M4 Sherman kit, made in so-called "hard plastic" for the Bolt Action WWII miniatures game, published by Warlord Games. As you can see from the images below, the kit has very few parts. It will require a moderate amount of cleanup, but the advantage of the harder make of plastic, aside from it being better suited for wargaming purposes, is that you can be just a little bit more direct when sanding, even with smaller or thinner parts. The build itself is not going to be much of challenge, except for maybe the turret, which comes in two parts and I expect will require some filling and extra sanding. What's more likely to be interesting (for me, at least) is painting and weathering it. The pigments etc. have to stick pretty well, because the model will obviously be handled when played with. I also get yet another chance of using the new and really neat Vallejo mud (thin/thick) products, which have been a joy to work with so far. Saves a lot of time from having to mix it yourself, and it's just my thing to be able to fiddle around with mud cakes on me models Looking forward to seeing other people's more complicated builds! Any Dragon or Trumpeter fans out there? ;-) Kind regards from Copenhagen!
