Ex-IDF so it will need some extras. I may have some of the items left over from an old MP Models M-50.

Thanks Saul.

Between me having parted out a number of M50/M51 kits and left overs from AEF I think I'm good. I'll keep you in mind if it doesn't work out.

:ohyeah

Did some digging in the parts boxes for more stuff for this build. I'm trying not to rebuild the turret as I just don't want to get bogged down with reshaping it. I did find an old resin cast turret. I not sure if I will use it. I ordered some parts from Asuka today for planned other Sherman builds and got another T-23 turret. I also have a Cyber-Hobby M4A1 76W coming too. (not planning on using that turret in that build)

Some of the parts I found today.




I reshaped the sides of the hull as they angle out more than it should.

Cleaned up more of the hull by removing molded on items and drilled the drain holes.





Started to add texture to the engine cover plates



Then started the casting texture

Spent some time working the casting texture last night

I first sanded down the putty mix I had put on and then coated the smooth areas with liquid cement and stippled that area with an old brush
