Quite possibly the first armor kit I ever built, back in the day. But yours somehow looks much more impressive, without the tube glue smears and the shiny gloss paint. Big Smile

But, seriously, that's a cracker of a job on that great old kit. Well done, that man! YesBeer

Sounds like we're of a similar vintage! Toast

That turned out great!  Oh man, that kit sure brings back a ton of memories.  I hope that Atlantis got these molds and will someday release these armor kits again.

Looks cool! Like the camo!

I saw those in stores way back when but never bought one. My first armour kit in a somewhat similar scale was Italeri in '87 or so. (This was 1/32nd or so right???)

You might try taking photos like Gino commented for less clutter in the background. I use a white sheet or posterboard for a lot of mine.

Great job! Did it come with the Shep Paine diorama insert?

I cut my teeth on the old Airfix HO scale Panther, then graduated to the Aurora 1/48 armor kits in the early '60s.  I was ten years older. I'm 68 now.

Those old Aurora kits had some good vehicles other comapnies just didn't have.  I remember the Stalin, the big tractor for the 155mm gun, and their Sherman was especially nice.  I also liked the tracked cargo vehicle with the plow and wooden stake sides.

When the Monogram tanks came out I though they were very nice kits and built all of them.  I wish I still had them but my Mother gave away all my models and other things while I was overseas on my first tour during Vietnam.  No explanation and I was out a lot of kits as well as other things that ended up valuable collector items.
