Originally this tank was supposed to be a South Vietnamese M48, but projects are projects and first things first. Now I have another one coming in the mail that will be assembled as a Vietnam era M48 for just that purpose. Later on in the week, German WWII Armourfast Jagdpanther, Airfix British Scimitar, and maybe a surprise or two. Huzzah!

Tank Week: M48A2 Patton. The School of Hard Knocks & Road Wheels
"Tank Week" begins here at Sound Officer's Call. First up - the venerable M48 Patton fielded by the West Germans for my upcoming Hameln, Germany World War III Bridge Assault. This is the Revell 1:72 kit and boy was it a nice one. Barely any problems with pieces fitting and characteristically German instructions, which were excellent. Sprayed a dark OD green on it to finish up, painted the tracks and roadwheels and then put on the decals.
