braille scale oldies

Spent some time this weekend to take new photos of a couple of builds done way back before I had a decent digital SLR camera.
 The M51 is a kitbash of the infamous Esci (now italeri) M4 sherman for the hull and the Hasegawa M4A3E8 for the running gear and turret. Inspired by Shep Paines 1/35 dio, I had intended to scratchbiuld a Dragon Wagon tank transporter to go along with this, well Academy does the tank trasnporter now, nice!

 The M163 is meant to be an Israeli version as well. I started with Esci's kit but scratchbuilt the gun and all the components that go into the turret. Looking at it now, it feels quite unfinished. Time for a redo? and possibly a resin update kit for this model?
