Bolt Action Yanks [8]

It's been a while since I had the time to spend on the Bolt Action project but, hopefully, I'll be able to dedicate some serious time to the Late War US reinforced platoon, once the term is finally done and dusted. It's the last day tomorrow and about time too. Anyway, I have spray basecoated the Corgi diecast M3A1 half tracks and the M4A3 Sherman 75mm tank, using a small can of Tamiya Olive Drab that I got half price in Modelzone at the weekend.

This will be followed by a wash and some judicious drybrushing to bring them all up to scratch. I'm even thinking of trying out some airbrushing, using a set of Vallejo paints that I have for just this sort of thing, but that might be a little ambitious. You may wonder why I haven't just used the pre-painted diecasts as they were? The answer is that they weren't very well painted to start with and were far too weathered for what I have in mind, being very dusty and more suitable for North Africa than North West Europe in late 1944.

  1. Corgi diecast make great Bolt Action models if a little pricey.
