A Pershing and a Couple of Pattons

Just some comparison shots of a Tamiya 1:48 M26 Pershing, Aurora/Atlantis 1:48 M46 Patton and Corgi 1:50 M48A3 Patton.
The two 1:48 kits of basically the same tank are quite close in size - as one would hope; however, the Aurora/Atlantis Patton's hull is slightly wider. Otherwise the two look pretty close overall. The M48, although in a slightly smaller 1:50 looksa bit bigger - mainly taller, which may be the actual reality.
Along with a couple of Victory Forces minis - the lower profiled M26 and M46 tanks seem to work better with 28mm figures.
Their side profile betrays their familial line.The M46 has an added lower bogie wheel before the rear drive wheel.
I've yet to decide if I'll weather them; although the M26, unless battle damaged, probably stayed pretty nice as they only entered the war in the final weeks/days of WW2.

Anyway, just wanted to post a comparison shot of these "modern" tanks. Time to return to the British 8th Army and DAK stuff. Thanks for stopping by and happy gaming an painting to you all.

  2. The result is excellent. DeanM, will you apply the effects of aging on them?

    1. Thanks, Dmitry. I will likely eventually add some weathering - but, right now, I'm not familiar with doing it. Have to watch a few more YouTube videos and practice as well. Warm regards, Dean

  3. Great to see the three on show together and the subtle discrepancy in scale. They still look wonderful Dean.

    1. Thank you, Phil. Just had to add them to the collection to complete the US tanks of the period. Well, there still is the M47 with large turret. Kind regards, Dean

  6. Looking good! I can tell you as a former tanker/armor officer, the M-48 looks about right in size compared to the others.

    1. Thank you very much, Ed! I grew up playing with plastic toy tanks which I believe were based on the M48 or possibly M60's - to my untrained eyes, very similar. Kind regards, Dean

    1. Thanks a lot, Iain. Maybe if I ever get around to the Korean War, I'll use both the Pershing and the M48 - just need some Soviet armor. Best regards, Dean

    1. Tough question, Dmitry. I like them all - but the one I had the most TLC-painting on was the Tiger one. Kindest regards, Dean

  11. They look the part Dean! I wouldn’t do too much weathering wise but maybe add some dust around the lower hull portion.
