M-24 Chaffee

  • move
Terry Barrow shares one of his latest work with Armorama - Italeri's 1/35th scale M-24 Chaffee backdated to WW II. Terry added Friul white metal tracks and also Verlinden's upgrade set. The figures are modified Verlinden ones and the stowage items are from Legend. Painting was done by Tamiya and oil paints.

Super job!! The subtle weathering brings out a lot of details. And the figures are great, the icing on the cake!

VERY NICE!!! To build the first of my M24s, I used an old ITALERI M24 donor kit with a now long-out-of-production all-resin FORMATIONS M24 Conversion kit, using just the Lower Hull from the donor. Everything else came from the SUPERB FORMATIONS Conversion kit. Also, I used the multi-media LIONROAR M24 Update set, RB Main Gun Barrel, and RB .30cal. MG Barrels. The .50 was built up with bits and pieces + Barrel from the LIONROAR M24 Update set. Like you, I used Friul Metal Tracks, with a mixture of DRAGON, VERLINDEN, and WARRIORS Crew Members and various resin bits and pieces by BLACK DOG, VERLINDEN and BLAST for the Stowage...

Very nice work!!! When I'm ready to build a Chaffee, I'm doing one that Chilean armed forces had in their inventory.

Hi, Ian! Save yourself some frustration by buying one (or both) of either the AFV CLUB M24 or the BRONCO M24 kits! Either of them are vastly superior to the old ITALERI or re-boxed TAMIYA M24s...
