Korean War M4 Sherman - With Teeth!

Recommended Posts

This model is of an actual tank that saw service during the Korean War.  To say its paint scheme is quite different from the norm would be a vast understatement.Korea4.jpg.141a65c3a993974c8c526ae6e58e17a3.jpgKorea1.jpg.1cab3e6e7a8a0dd30d5f12c0cf97c6b6.jpgKorea2.jpg.e29c8a2315d3724abbb25daa9d095b9c.jpgKorea3.jpg.65e287323c0049e449f196a2872ce98a.jpg

I painted the front hull red,  then applied the decals.  The large mouth/teeth and the large eyes did not go on perfectly so I had to do some restoration with carefully applied black and white paint.

The paperwork that came with the model identified this tank as being  "Rice's Red Devils"  C Company,  89th Tank Battalion,  25th Infantry Division,  Han River Basin,  1951.

Great, another amazing model with excellent details! This painting was for sure a top morale booster for the crew. There were different variants of the tiger face existing, right? I think I have seen a picture of a tiger stripe face once.

This is a nice clean tank. I like the fact that you painted the front hull red. Also your mantlet cover looks very good. What did you use to make it?

 

Semper Fi.

The very nicely detailed mantlet cover came with the model.
