Got a little bit done yesterday. Had to work 18 hours on/or New Years Eve and New Years day and that has messed up my schedule some.

Started to add the cheek armor to the turret. I'll be using some .040 styrene strip for this.



reference






Sanded the hull lower and upper





Added casting texture to the driver's and co-driver's hatches



Finished the casting texture to the transmission housing

This is looking great so far. One thing that really enhances my visits to the Thread are the Sherman County pics at the end of each post. Way to go!

Glad you guys are liking the Sherman County pictures.

You really should thank my wife for those, she likes taking pictures of old barns. So when I'm out for work I'll take a couple somewhere in the County and send them to her for a place to go and take pictures. The ones I'm putting up are taken from my phone. The ones with a lot of color she has edited.

One way to have fun in nowhere Kansas. :idonno

Worked on the cheek armor yesterday by adding styrene strip





Add some styrene strip to the bottom turret channel as that was deeper than the one I saw at Fort Hood. I'm not sure if this is right, but I filled it.



More casting texture

Part of my job includes storm spotting.

Nice, this thicker armor, was it cast in manufacturing or added on?

On the late turrets it is part of the casting. The Academy kit is missing it :drinks

Looking good. When did Iran take them out of service, are they still using them?

I think sometime during the Iran Iraq war. In that they used as far as I know, M4 105, M36, M36B1, M36B2, M4A3 105, M4A3E8 105
