Tank Destroyer



An M10 to add some much need firepower for my British troops faced with Panzermeks. This is the basic American model but I will probably play it as an Achilles. A thousand M10s were retrofitted with the extraordinary 17pdr anti-tank gun for the British Army, the most lethal tank killer of WWII. The same gun that was shoehorned into the Firefly.

I bought this assembled and nicely painted model on eBay and then gave it the JTS 'dirt' treatment.

  1. Thanks Phil.
    As I said the previous owner must take a lot of the credit. I did the dirtying. I'm good at that. My car is proof.

  2. Brilliant model!

    What scale is it?

    1. It is 1/48. This scale best matches 28 mm, in my opinion. 28 mm is. nominally 1/56, but not really. Corgi 1/50 also works.

  4. Of all the wonderful gifts that we've been given, one of the greatest is freedom aion gold, a bumblebee if dropped into an open tumbler will be there until it dies, unless it is taken out aion gold, It never sees the means of escape at the top, but persists in trying to find some way out through the sides near the bottom aion gold.
