Flames of War US Mid War vehicles

With today being the 98th Finnish independence day it's time for some vehicles from the only major Allied nation that didn't declare war on Finland during WW2, namely the US. They have been sitting for way too long waiting for finishing touches, but I finally got around to adding mud and varnishing them this morning.

So once again more Olive Drab, this time of earlier variety with vehicles that were mostly used during the African campaign. 5 M3 tanks with the long barreled gun and two M3A1 scout cars to have some fast recce elements to support the tanks and armored rifle platoons. I'm sticking with my tried and tested method of base color with modulation done by airbrush and weathering by chipping and enamel washes.

With these finished my autumn US project is finally drawing closer to the end. Only 3 platoons left and some extras like Jeeps, command stands etc.The only real larger thing missing is one Armored Rifle Platoon. Hopefully I can get the rest finished before the end of the year as I should have a little more time for painting as for the first time in months I'm actually home on the weekends instead of hunting trips etc.

And finally something suitable for todays occasion.

    1. Thanks! I think I've finally nailed the color choice. Though it did take quite a few vehicles to find the proper one :)
