M10 TD Tank Destroyers Platoon

Postby Whiterook » Wed Aug 02, 2017 9:32 pm

This is a platoon of three M10 TD Tank Destroyers Platoon, sold by Old Glory, Command Decision Miniatures. They are 15mm, in metal, and have gorgeous sculpts to them. I actually started building these awhile ago, but I'm planning on finishing these bad boys up soon.

I've been wanting to get back into WWII miniature wargaming for awhile now, and can't believe this much time has gone by, with no games played.

Command Decision Miniatures come packaged in bags....

Hollow hulls (as opposed to say, Flames of War, that have solid resin hulls) keep the miniatures light, yet the metal gives them decent weight. Superglue is the glue of choice and proper care in assembly makes things go smoothly....they are not difficult to assemble.

The tracks are very nicely sculpted; I dare say better than most Flames of War miniatures I've worked on.

Next up came gun barrels! They fit into a small recess hole, molded into the tank hull....the problem being, how to support them while the glue dries. I used a sanding stick, which was just high enough to support the barrel and a perfect angle.

Like I said, assembly is pretty quick!
