Here's the kit that I thunk you were making.  This is a couple of uncompleted kits along with a finished one.

I couldn't do 1:72 models. My fingers are too fat and my eyesight isn't great.

Here are some more - she's coming along.

^ that's the bit I'm worried about

The paint I'm using seems (is!) a bit pale - but I didn't want to go mixing paints just to end up with more paint that wasn't right. So I'm using what I've got which I believe is Humbrol Pale Grey

Great looking Sherman!  ;)
Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

my pleasure.  :)  fyi  if you go down the pastel path dont worry about getting the specific weathering sticks.  just go to a Michaels or Hobby Lobby and get the cheap stuff.  same effect less cost.
