Oh and I have been reading up on Cold War era tanks (a weak point for me) as I am already quit well versed on modern and ww2 tanks (aside from the Japanese). Since you seem to be the Vietnam/Korean war tank expert which tank was better the m48 Patton or the m41 walker bulldog.
As for the M41 vs M48, they were designed for different things. The M41 Walker Bulldog was one of the last American light tanks, meant for scouting. Thus they had thinner armor and better mobility. The M48 was an American heavy/main battle tank, which placed emphasis on heavy armor and firepower, but usually at the cost of some mobility. Either way, the M41 fared worse in the Vietnam War.
Yea, but I would consider the m48 a proto MBT because it was a test for the xm 1. Another question for you which movie do you like more full metal jacket or platoon (I understand they are different styles). My favorite is probably platoon, but I really like gunny (the staff Sergeant) in full metal jacket. I also remember watching his show lock n’ load as a kid (which I still am) and it was great he was so funny especially when he’d make his puns or fire a Minnie gun. Have you ever seen a 65 year old man firing a Minnie gun (sadly he died last year and it’s in my mind he is on par with Steve irwin).
Just finished the imperial knight. He is fully magnetized. Mind the dust he has been sitting in a desk for some time now, but I can assure you that when I field him once again I’ll give him a little touch up.
This is my preferred brush. It’s made by Neo (the company that makes iwatas brushes) and is one of the surpluses that the company did not sell to iwata. It is basically a $200 dollar brush for $50. The only thing about it is that it has a thick needle which in my opinion is a plus because it is harder to break.
I usually use hardware store lacquer thinner to clean my airbrush, since it's mostly metal. It'll take care of pretty much any paint that dries inside. Just gotta be careful with using it around plastic parts.
Yes he is extremely fun and easy model to build. In my local hobby spree we pretend quake is a predator tank for my space marine army. Partially becuase we can and partially becuase he only preys on the weak!
