1/72 – UM – 214 – M4A2 with M1 Dozer Blade, FINISHED Model.

A bit of history:

The destruction generated by military operations, and various obstacles deployed by the Axis forces to slow down the progress of the Allied armour led to the need for a dozer tank. The US Army needed an armoured dozer able to clear roads, fill in ditches and bomb craters, clear rubble and move destroyed vehicles blocking roadways. The allied armies used several types of bulldozer, however, these machines were un-armoured and could be used only in zones far away from the frontline.

This is one of my first works in the scale of 72th, after 35th scale of the model I have tried to carry out a full list of all the weathering techniques.

Green came out a little more green than allies, but I did not repaint it all over again. Dozer blade I dyed in three stages.The first struck a subterranean dark red (the color of burnished steel), then the method of hairspray struck green, a little flush green, repeated the same trick with Metallic paint. Model painted as usual with artistic acrylic Polycolor, MIG pigments, and oils.

Assemble this kit was easy. Problems perhaps made ​​only tracks. A little bit of Tamiya putty and the model is ready.
