I picked up the hobby of model cars,planes etc when 8 was a kid and was not very good at due to money for paint and most of all patience. When I became an adult(age only) and was trying to introduce my son to the hobby I decide to honor my grandfathers service with the 644th TD. I did these 3-5 years ago and they are not the best but i enjoy looking at them.

The Greyhound modification is way cool. Have you considered altering the 1/6 scale Greyhound into that configuration?

I think you did a nice job on both models. I believe your grandfather would be proud too. Good work!

644td, welcome to the modeling section! These are some very nice models, thanks for sharing your great work. I especially like your weathering/chipping on the M10. Would love to see more of your work! These are 1/35 scale kits, right?

They are 1/35 and the chipping was done with the salt technique. Thank you for the postive feedback I would like to take better picture but when I do I have trouble resizing them to fit the forum.
