Tamiya - US Tank Crew, 4th Armored Division (ETO) 1944-45


Just managed to squeeze out one more creation before I return to Tokyo to attend the Shizuoka Hobby Show this weekend. This 1/35 scale bust was created from the same box set of US tank crew figures from Tamiya. The gun barrel was taken from my scrap box and a canteen cup fashioned from a plastic Tamiya canteen bottle.


No further enhancements were made to the basic figure - just good ol' fashion careful painting to bring out the features. A special shout out for Franco Serra for his skillful hand in crafting the miniature wooden base for this project. Do check out his fine workmanship at IL Basetta.







 A Private Reiben inspired writing on the tankers jacket.



Cheers,

Calvin
