It would be appreciated should you decide to take part, and you have roughly 8 hours to decide :thumbup:

Even with the small number of entries this will be another close match. All are most excellent tanks and look just great. I really wish I could see video of the E8 and Jimster's T1. (hint, hint) I love the new and improved smoke launchers on the T1, I wish I could see that Clark doing it's stuff. The convoy light is another nice detail on a a tank that has obviously had much, much attention paid to said detail.

And Adam, if it weren't for all that water I might be sending you PM's and pestering you to sell that E8. My favorite Sherman, and man have you done a fine job on it. Have you battled it yet, and if so, how did she perform? Your weathering is some of the best I've seen, subtle and very realistic. And your driver is great, think you could post a link to where I can get one like him? I doubt I can paint him as well, but I'm willing to try. 8)

And the AMX-13 is another awesome entry, a unique subject, skillfully presented, and the build quality is top notch. I got a real kick out of seeing him "drag race" that insect on the bridge. I love videos like that, and I can tell it has stock electronics, which to me is even more impressive. There's something extra special about a tank that looks that good and was brought in for a low budget. It takes skill to pull that off, and the AMX-13 has it down pat.

Not enough data on the hybrid Tiger!!

Once again, you guys have made it very difficult to decide who to vote for. Fine job, Lads. :clap: :clap: :thumbup: :thumbup:

Thanks Gary :)

She isn’t a battler, the M51 Sherman was my Sherman battler. Currently I only have one battle tank left, which is my Russian front Tiger I.

The figure is a stock Tamiya one with a new head. I recommended the figure set from Sol that Dave over at Forgebear sells. They are some of the best I’ve used.

As to selling it, sadly it’s a keeper. I had a really tough decision knowing what to keep and sell - it’s sister E8, the M4A1E8 is in the for sale section however :D

Thank you Mr cannedheat for yet another marvellous entry :thumbup:

Gary, what you said about the amount of work, detail etc, you are so right, and I find it quite a shame that when most military models are painted in usually one colour, a lot of people miss those little extras, and any homemade/scratch built parts no matter how big or small :thumbup:

Funny how this has happened, it's like waiting for a bus, one early, then nothing for ages, then they all turn up together after the official time lol ;)

Thank you Mr's Exhibitedbrute, maxmekker and tomhugill for another 3 marvellous entries :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

Mr maxmekker.

I think I've got the video working in your post. But it's a bit hit and miss for me, YouTube directed me here about your video.
