I'm in the process of building another M48 in Vietnam diorama. It will be an M48 crew relaxing and trying to stay "cool", in more ways than one in the Vietnamese summer. The M48 is an old kit from Academy/Minicraft from 1986. Its a nice kit but I discovered that some parts were missing, like the turret hand rail and the rear cargo bustle. So I had to scratchbuild the handrail and the bustle is next. I also ordered some figures from Bravo6 and a Men's magazine pin-up sheet from Archer Fine Transfers.

The post with the nude women has been hidden as it's not something we permit to be posted on the forum for a variety of reasons. Thanks for your understanding.

Somehow when the original post was done there was an ad for Archer transfers but instead of insignia the pictures were from a 1960s Playboy.

 

Rather graphic :mellow:

Okay guys, a decision regarding the decals/pictures was made. Let's focus on the Tank, the figures and the dio. I would like to suggest the following procedure: Manny, please post the progress of your work. We all are looking forward to see your dio completed. Maybe it's possible to "cover" theses parts of the pictures that could be misinterpreted.

 

Thanks very much

 

Lars

Hey guys, I apologize if I offended anyone with the pin-up/magazine pics. It was not my intention. I do intend to still use them in my diorama but I will take the finished photos for the forum prior to using them. So no one will see anything that is against forum rules and protocol. Again I'm sorry I started such a ruckus.

Here are some follow-up pics as I scratch built the rear gear bustle. I tried the best I could and I like the way it came out. Now I can concentrate on putting the tank together. The decals are from Star Decals and I haven't decided which unit I'll be using and I'm still waiting on the figures from Bravo6. Enjoy.

 

Semper Fi.

 

Manny

Well I primed the gear basket/bustle and I found out I didn't have the L antennae on the turret either so I had to scratchbuild that one too. As best as I could. I'm still waiting on my Bravo6 figures, but here are a few more pics.

 

Semper Fi.
