You mean like this? Not hard, just takes patience, and really not much of that.

That, boys and girls, is a Sherman build. I see Nick Aguilar's T 23 turret and upper hull, lots of nice detail, quite well done, hinges everywhere, tons of detail, most scratched. A masterpiece, inside and out.

Welcome to the collectors corner...don't put yourself down....we all learned by doing....buying a plastic model kit and making a total mess of it.[:@]...and learned to do better next time. Check out U-tube...lots of our RC tanks there. My special tank is my M-46.
"M-46 Patton in korea". Many of us put some of our work on U-tube and enjoy watching other RC tanks in action. Warning: Do NOT buy one. It is a disease and you will have a room full of these things to keep you busy.

Thanks Greg, that means alot coming from you.

I do believe Nick still makes them and the M36 turret, M34A1 mantlet and aluminum barrel as well. He's pretty busy, so if you want one you should drop him a line. He always comes through for me!
