« Part 2: wish glue dryed faster and was young enough not to look guilty when caught playing Part 3 of planes, trains and vehicals? series Part 4: the b-25 is pulling together and the fighter is starting »

The tank is done I think it turned out pretty good, the little one is the first tank the bigger the rebuild. They are both painted in camo green the smaller one was a paint over a green stain.

The next project which as you can see is already started will be a B25 Mitchell. The body is out of like a lot of what I build 3/4 pine the wings are out of 3/8 pine the engines just dowel. I have a couple wheels set in front for propellers although it is just for effect I am not sure what I will use in the end.

Already thinking of the next piece jeep or artillery piece.

I like the tank, I cant wait to see what the plane looks like. Are you going to keep it simple or ad some decals, (Painted or stickers) on the plane when done?

I am not sure to be honest these are a fathers day and birthday thing for my dad as he wanted something to put on a shelf and requested them to be like the toys he would have gotten as a boy growing up. I would like to paint it od green with white star and strips at the very least.
