My armor-aircraft models

The vehicles that make boom in the night

 

M46 Patton

This is a replica of 6th battalion stationed in Korea. Link to link track required the removal of 2 ejector pin marks on each and the addition of 4 pivot holes. The 6th armor group used a M26 gun mantle that was not supplied in the kit. Filling the gunners primary sight indentation and adding the M2HB machine gun finished this part off. Handholds and hangers were added as was MV lenses. The removal of the right front towing shackle and drilling the hole was customary change done on the 6th. And the muffler gaurds were in need of being modified for the correct look. It was painted using Floquil and Model Masters paints. All the stipes were painted by hand.
