Upon one of my friends request, I decided to deal with Sherman in 1/35th scale, and M4 Early made by Tamiya landed on my workbench.
Assembly did not present any surprises and went on quickly and smoothly. After having Sherman assembled, I applied two light coats of grey primer, to improve surface adhesion. When it was dry, I accented shadows and panel lines (pre-shading) with Vallejo Black Primer.
Whenever we see Sherman, most of us think Olive Drab... Since I wanted something different, so I chose two tone camouflage as seen during Italian campaign.
For the base colors I choose Tamiya paints. Firs I applied Desert Yellow (XF-59) with some Buff (XF-57) highlights.
