British Sherman ARV mkI


Author Russ Sharp


This is the British Sherman ARV mkI in Italy. The Sherman hull and running gear came from the spare parts box, the stowed booms and rigging were scratchbuilt, large bins on front and back are from Verlinden, jerry cans from Tamiya and all the rest of the stowage was either scratchbuilt or taken from various supply kits. The overall dark olive was hand brush painted, all markings were hand painted to depict field changes by crews. ARV was weathered with a wash of black and brown acrylics, drybrushed with a dust colour and weathered further with pastels. Figures are from the spares box. The ruins were scratchbuilt using an eraser-like material and softdrink straws.
