Dirty`s Matorro/Hl Sherman with Hedgerow Cutter
« on: April 20, 2017, 07:14:36 PM »
So next building site. It will not be too extensive, therefore also times times. ;) At least the tank drives already times.

So what should it be. . . A Sherman
With Hedgerow Cutter



The first beginnings

Matorro underside with bow section and metal landing gear and HL upper tub.





Fits perfectly together. Trough left and right on the support 2mm narrower make the upper tub with 2 support strips, magnets pure. . . . . . Greasy.

Tub is gutted as usual.





And then this

An old pressure switch

Brass threaded rod

And the trailer coupling



A round piece was glued in from the cut-out holders.



First built a stable floor. 5mm hard plastic.



Installation of the pressure switch



The coupling is provided with a threaded rod.



Switch off.





Switch on.





On the left and on the right came a pair of supporting strips. With neodymium magnets this holds.



The tower cleared.



The part of the back of the tower was separated.



And glued directly to the tower. After spatula and cast structure it looks like a piece.

The many voices in my head assure me that I am perfectly normal.

Best regards. . . . . . . Harry

Thank for all your comments  :D

There was a big hole in the back of the bottom, the rough trowel. Just a piece of poly.



Looks from the bottom then so.



So; Now still Ladestecker but where?

There is enough space.





The Scalebauer will now turn away with horror and brechanfalls but I am good.
Who is looking under the tank?

The air filter boxes were slightly shortened at the top and glued next to the ladder plugs for lamination



Looks so finished.





Incidentally built the coax machine.





At the muzzle brake I was lucky.
Looks really like ne flattened IVer



Here my . Looks diagonally it is not.



And the pipe.



And times imprisoned.





A piece of plastic pipe was glued into the cannon cradle as a guide.
Beautifully easy, there is nothing to eat.





This got a longitudinal slot so the pipe can not twist.





Loudspeaker and amplifier.





As a battery I take only 2600 lipos. The long fat and from the place one saves also what.
What do I need a 5000 battery when I'm talking loud eh only 3/4 hours.





Tube retraction with servo











And another Bug Mg built

The Mgs are fueled with optical fibers.





The cast numbers have also arrived



Since the crate got a crew, the hatches had to be opened and something to be detailed.





The hatches got their edges.









A small overall view with additional armor.



The many voices in my head assure me that I am perfectly normal.

Best regards. . . . . . . Harry

In meinem Lexicon gibt es kein Wort so wie 'Brechanfalls', aber ich verstehe wohl.  Ich bin an ihrem Panzer erstaunend, denn Sie haben so viel Modellbaugeschick.  Auch danke ich Ihnen für das Foto das Slater's Plastikard zeigt.  Vielleicht auch ist Slater's hier im VS und im Australien erhälich.

My dictionary does not include the Word "Brechanfalls," but I can readily understand it.  I am amazed by your tank, for you have so much skill at modeling.  Thank you, too, for the photo showing Slater's Plasticard.  Perhaps Slater's is also available here in the US and in Australia.

Here I once built the hedgerow cutter.





Welded and primed. . . . . . . .





And cultivated.





I had a few tamiy files for the tower.



Gußnummern. There must be a little more sanding.





And the attachment of the upper tub.





Had no desire to craft today, instead, something on the PC played around. .

But that came out. . . . . . . . Well, the Sherman carries a lot of dumplings with him.









And assembled here. Also a very nice fool.







And still ne one man pack. Slowly, the fingers become too thick.

Casting structure with dilute Revell Plasto. 8)





primed



And again a new idea ::)

 The m8 armored ammunion trailer is making progress

The front with the battery box of lighting





And the back





Since I did not get US tires I must take Opel Blitz tires.



The hinges do not want me right there I'll probably build others for it.

(the End is near)


It's getting so slow.

The hanger bar still made of poly L-profiles.









Here the complete team









Then still residual use of the special kind.







The hand has disappeared in the endless widths of carpet galaxy.
I have to carve again.



The sandbags were filled and adapted with air drying baskets. They are now dyed slightly differently, glued together and already I lose nothing more and can take it as a whole piece if I have to clean.



And here is the result when the Mattlack spins. Thus 5 finished figures looked. Strangely, the first two were faultless.
They are not primed. They were ready.
Gorgeous what? :-X :-X :-X :-X





But I got her back.







For the eyes paint I must first come into the austerity of the sublime. Otherwise nothing will happen. Let's see if there is still nitroverdünnung there.

Current condition

Hello Friends...make my Day...or my Sherman.   ;D

At the stern came only once fresh film and then the luggage was glued together. I can take it as a complete part,

Furthermore, the MG was also still wrapped.







The tower got a few handles to attach also luggage.





Some loading for the trailer. The attachments come only at the end when everything is painted.





Loading the tank







And even more luggage.



Have once again forgotten the photograph,

First olive green then brightened from above and sand-colored patches.









And the Hedgrow Cutter somewhat polluted

Während des Probefahrts war der Hund amusiert!  Mein Hündchen had ihn auch gehört, und weint ein bißchen.  Aber wann ich euere hervorragende Fähigkeit sehe, dann weine ich auch.  Ich bin immer fertig mehr to sehen.  Danke vielmal!

Your dog was amused during the test drive.  My little pup heard your dog in the video, too, and whined a bit.  But when I see your outstanding skill, I cry too.  I am always ready to see more.  Thanks!

Since I do not like any decals were made again stencils.



Looks cut out then.



Und am Fahrzeug angebracht.







And sprayed with ivory.





the result.








The trailer is already finished, except for the straps. Maybe still a bit filthy.











This is the current state.

Haben Sie die Stencils doch selbst gemacht oder sind sie irgendwo zu verkaufen?

Did you make the stencils yourself, or are they available for sale somewhere?
