Holy Cow!  (an appropriate Wisconsin, US, expression)  Welcome Adam "Ad Lav."  I am impressed by your having all Tamiya tanks and so well done!  Being a Yankee, I especially like the Sherman in the mud.  If you have the photo editing software and ability, you could convert that photo of the Sherman to Black and White and it would look like it came right out of late 1944.

I am curious: when you get one of your tanks muddy, how do you clean it up?  (Of course, leaving a 1/16 tank muddy might make for great "weathering," but would be quite rough on the running gear.  In fact, even the real ones did best if cleaned up as often as practicable.)

Herr Dr. - thank you for the kind words.

Yes, I miss confess I do love a good tamiya kit. Been struggling to bond with other manufacturers despite trying several times - they just end up being sold.

Ha, I actually rarely take me tanks in the mud! Grass etc yes! Mostly run on woods floors at our local meets or grass.
