M4A3 Sherman w/ 105 mm Howitzer & 75 mm Long Gun tanks by Jack12477 - 1:35 scale - Tamiya - FINISHED

Recommended Posts

Came out really nice Jack.

You constantly amaze me with how fast you can throw a diorama together and make it looks so good. It took me months just to envision what I want to do with my Huey when it gets built and I have no idea at all if I can even carry it off. To me the building of a diorama takes an artist while at the level I am, building a model is mostly just mechanical skill. It is clear that you are an artist.

sorry I missed it!!!   Jack....the dio came out superb in every way!   it looks very life like :)    folks in the south can harvest that very moss........grows like crazy around swamps and the glades.  we have a variation up here,  but you have to look really hard for it.  it just so happens that I can find it from an Oak tree that grows in the field across the road.  I got some for the B&M snow plow that I haven't finished yet......been a few years.


you did a great job....it's awesome! :)

Well guys, I am going to declare these two Sherman builds with their respective dioramas complete. Thanks everyone for following along, your Likes, comments, critiques, suggestions and all, were greatly appreciated. 


I am not sure what I will do next, might decide to do some woodcarving instead of model building. I haven't done any carving in a couple of years now, might be time to resume. At least I can sit outside and make shavings instead of being hole up in the basement. 


Stay tuned !

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
