    Hello all! When I saw the concept art for the M4 Sherman HotRod I really wanted to try and have a go at making my own “non transformable” so with the UK being in lockdown and nothing to do. I’ve started today! I’ll update it through the week as I’ll be painting him.

    UPDATE: add the right side front of the Sherman to the chest with the shoulder panel. Although it looks small so I’m working on making it larger.

    Placed the turret on the back

    April 25th

    Happy with the legs, looks a bit messy but it will be cleaned up. Used Cobra Dropkick’s foot as a replacement. Tested a new orange paint on his face.

    UPDATE

    September 4th

    this project has been a off and on kinda thing... I realised I haven’t posted anything in a long time. I’m not sure if me adding new photos will update the page so It’s classed as ‘new’. Anyway... All I’ve got to do is clean his back up. Putting the exhausts on his back and Then the ‘wheels’ on his knees. Then I’ll give him another paint over. His knee pads are a bit wide.. looks like a cut off kilt

    Looking good so far! You've certainly nailed the look and feel of the movie look.

    They look just fine to me.
