M26A1 Pershing

Ron Puttee



The vehicle was modelled from the Dragon kit 6801 basically out of the box, as a B. Co., 1 Marine Div. Pershing near Ham-hung, Korea 1950. While not based off a specific photo they were studied for appearance and weathering.

Paint was a mixture of Tamiya green acrylics. Mud was added with the airbrush and pastels while the snow is baking soda.
