Models by JTFM/Die Waffenkammer. These are beautiful models. JTFM is my favorite maker of resin 1/56 vehicles. High quality models professionally delivered.
I put together three of them. That’s a nice group though I’m really tempted to do 2 more to have a 5 tank section. Not that I know what I’d actually do with 5 tanks on the game table but it would be nice to have them!
I don’t think having all these vehicles will turn my favorite game, Chain of Command, into a tank game but we might get these all on the table tomorrow!
And here are a few close-ups of one of the tanks. I’m basically using Steven Zaloga’s techniques from his book on painting American armor. It’s pretty straightforward really. He has a nice OD formula with some suggestions on lightening it to get some effects on the model and then using washes for the dust effects. It seems to be a fairly believable dusty Sherman technique.
The decals are from a couple of sheets of decals from Warlord Games. Those decals are extremely easy to use! I love them.
