M41 Walker Bulldog Tank Model


Let’s take a break from my customary Warhammer 40k/Reaper minis for a bit. Exit the world of fantasy/sci-fi to enter historical armor, specifically US tanks.

I recently was sucked into all things World War II tanks due to a video game called World of Tanks I’ve been playing. From there, I started looking at other tanks, such as the M41 Walker Bulldog used in the Vietnam War.

I didn’t take a shot of it out of the box, but it was a washed-out olive green color. It is plastic, and it came in unconstructed in about 100 different parts that you have to cut, file down, glue and put together. It’s a model tank from Tamiya. They make quite a selection of old, and current, tank models.

Without getting too long in the tooth, here’s the mid-stage photos…

And here’s the finished model shots…

Warlite coming back!

Believe it or not, I have been painting over the last few months. I've just been too lazy to post the pictures. I've got them on my camera and will be uploading them here this week. Just wanted to let you guys know there's content coming and I'm not dead. :)
