Some really nice work there Satch....one minute,you show one bogie.....next ,you gotta whole Shermie.....How'd that happen? I do have a question tho',as a total Shermie novice....Didn't they all have the 'slider' track guides,or whatever they were,adjacent to the top rollers?
Hey Satch the shermi is coming on fast i agree with you totally on the pigment issues it is a hard thing to master i think you have done alright one thing i have found is i use a really thinned Tamiya Buff in my AB for dust then round hatch etc i use pigments in white spirit once this dries i then use a dry flat brush and spread it round more if i have put too much on i hope i have explained clearly enough and this works for me as it might not for others keep up the good work
I begin with the suspension. Dragon gives you choice wether you want the suspension to be fixed or to be workable, I chose the latter this time. I also made a start on the sprockets and that's pretty much it

Satch that is a really nice sherman build. The texture of the cast is superb. On the pigments i think you would be a lot more satisfied if you use a Large soft brush and brush over it to take some of the stark contrast away. Pigments take a while to master.Remember they look a lot different when dry than when you apply them. At that stage i would blend them out and then apply some dry to further blend. If you are new to them i would suggest diluting them to a very weak ratio and dry between coats. Let them flow around the details rather than paint it on. Hope this helps you,cheers.
