My first Tanks from GF9

:bowty: These are the first batch of models from Gale Force 9 for the new TANKS Game. I have 3 more British and 3 more Germans to work on this week. KennyJ is working on 3 Russian tanks also.

Nice Loco, did you have two starters or are you swapping bodies too?

Did you airbrush the camo or brush it on? It looks great!

:bowty: Just swapping turrets. I had an extra US Sherman kit. The M36B1 is the leftover turret from the British Achilles kit. The Firefly is one of the early FoW attempts to go plastic. Not as good as the new ones but, it will work. I have two more of these for the Sherman V.

This was stippled on with a brush.

Very, very nice. On my son's Panther/Jagdpanther, we were able to magnetize the top hulls so that they were interchangeable as well. Works pretty slick and he got two different tank types for the game. However, so far he does not want to paint them up...he prefers the plain colors??? Not sure where I am going wrong with this one????

:bowty: I just glued a piece of sprue to the front upper hull on each one so the body wouldn't slide off.

The paint jobs look good.

The interchangeable tops sound funny - apparently that's they way they are set up?

The Panther comes with only one lower hull. You get a Panther or Jagdpanther upper hull so you have a choice. I like to be able to switch to either one depending on what I'd like to put in my build for the game. The Sherman kits give you the option for a 76mm or 75mm version turret.
