Nice Sherman! I really like the weathering on those tracks.

Once again Herr Professor,
Very nice Sherman, simple yet elegant at the same time. Love the I beam and the tracks!

Mr lmcq11,
Ah, the venerable M113! I'm starting to see a theme here (i.e. you're into "modern" armor). Beautiful detail, inside and out!

I think it's going to be a very good TOTM contest again!

Cheers,
Eric.

Hi, not really, Its just that i had my fill of doing Panzers and Shermans of the N version over the years, and needed to move on to other types to maintain interest.

Good! The contest is off and rolling. I do not plan to vote for my own entry, as there are always better. Bring 'em on!

I understand, WW2 does seem to rule the roost. I still do prefer the WW2 tanks to all others, but when "modern" tanks and AFV's are done to the level of your M113 and Leopard I find them to be very interesting and refreshing.

Cheers,
Eric.

Andy,

Very nice Bison. Something you don't see very often. I really like the amount of travel in the gun barrel (No comments, Mick :wave: ). I was going to say elevation, but that would be giving Mick way too much ammo! Sorry, back to your wonderful model. I believe I even see a little "Adolf" mustache on the commander? I've seen videos of these machines firing and have always been amazing at how much they jumped around under recoil. The amount of muzzle blast was impressive too! I guess a large caliber weapon on a relatively small, light chassis will do that. At any rate, a very nice entry!

Regards,
Eric.

Eric, it's nothing special, just a basic and standard Mato Sherman with a bit of muddy looking paint splashed on for good measure.

A very late congratulations to Imcq11!

The M113 was superb! The interior lighting sealed the deal for me!

Thanks to the other entrants too! All 3 were fine examples of this RC hobby.

Hoping for a all Sherman TOTM. So much variety and different takes on them it would be very cool to see!

Well done Gents! :thumbup:

Eric.

Nice! Congrats Imcq11! on the M113. I, too, never tire of WWII tanks, but it is good to see modern AFVs!
