Hi folks, thought I wouldn't rush to start this after the late ending TOTM in July.

As always, we look forward to seeing what models each month brings.

You can find this month's dedicated chat thread here.

More of a tribute and acknowledgement of current times, than a serious contestant. This is a Heng Long T-90, with markings indicating it has been captured by Ukrainian forces. The markings I've seen in photos of the real tanks are spontaneous and ad hoc, so I placed them as I'd guess where they'd be useful. It's pretty much stock, just some re-wiring to allow the "red eyes" to be controlled independently. I noticed that nearly every photo I saw showed the tanks to be more dusty than muddy, so I modelled that.

I'll throw my hat in the ring, here's a Sherman M4A1 from my collection. It has a Clark tk40 with Sherman radial sounds, taigen metal turret with recoil and flash. I added the stowage and supplemental armor plates from DGS military hobbies. ImageImageImageImageImageImage
