Is that scratch, or a kit?

Looks like to be a kit.

They plan to make models of late Soviet MBT prototypes as well.

Ah, so a one off. 

 

Still, adds fuel to my long damped model building hobby.  Just need to allocate the bench space in the bunker.

Nice build, and the camo scheme is very cool.

 

Dropped in to say the BM Sherman GB is underway, if you fancy joining in, it's here:  http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/forum/611-m3m4-medium-tank-stgb/

 

Massive Kudos to you @Jeeps_Guns_Tanks  While we might not agree on Korea much, your site and especially your beautifully cleaned up images are proving a godsend to us.

Hey, nice to see you back, I probably came at that last conversation a little hard and got a little out of hand.  Many of the old timers around here will jump all over each other at times but it is not personal because we know each other well enough, I was out of line jumping so hard on you.  Please accept my apology, and I'll play nice in the future. 

 

Thank you for the compliments on the images, I'm glad to hear the modeling community is getting some use out of them. I'm going to have some great stuff on the R975 soon.

No worries, it's all cool.....Believe me your site should be getting a small spike in visits, assuming the lazy buggers actually bother to follow the links we post for 'em! 

 

Don't suppose you've ever seen a picture of a M31 TRV named 'Georgia On My Mind', serial number 40104020, turret number 27, sand over OD camo, allegedly from 2nd Armored Division during Operation Husky?  It's one of the options in the Takom 1/35 kit & I'm trying to track it down for one of the participants, but it has eluded me so far.

 

PS - Found this, which looks to be from the right division and have the right camo:

But that's as close as I've got so far.

@EnsignExpendable

Other than the amusing error...

IIRC that's an Italeri kit.  AMT/ERTL was mainly a reboxer, other than the odd Hawk or Aurora kit .
