My first American teams for Flames of War. I wanted a really dirty look on these as that was what stuck with me visually in the historic photos I looked at. In the images most tanks seemed so dirty that it made the allied stars almost invisible. One of the great things about single colour tanks (apart from being a little quicker and easier to paint) is how well it shows weathering. I purchased these tanks a while back so once again another good hit on my stock of unpainted toys. I painted one Stuart Platoon with black camo to help tell them apart when I get around to using them both in a game. I added a few more bits of stowage, another noticeable aspect in old WW2 photos. The Shermans in these pics are about 95% done and the Stuarts just really need a little more matt varnish.
