15mm Battlefront Stuart Tank - DS

US005 M5A1 Stuart
My fiancee does a good job of buying Christmas gifts.  It's quite rare that I get something I really want, as opposed to nice things I like such as shirts, socks, dvds, and gift certificates.  The Stuart rates up there with surprises of Christmas past like:  the Mego Planet of the Apes Treehouse, the Ideal Toys Gunfight at O.K. Corral game, the blue box edition of Dungeons and Dragons, and an electric guitar. 

It's nice to paint something different than British Airborne infantry.  I will have to get some sort of U.S. WWII project going.  There still needs to be some work with how I shade and highlight the figure too, although I am pretty happy with it.  Decals really provide a nice finish to the model.

Thanks Emily!

  1. That is the joy of hobbies. Once you know someone's hobby, it often makes them real easy to buy for. Nice pic!
