Dan Paints! USMC Sherman - Part 1

This week over on the Behind Enemy Lines YouTube account, our resident painting instructor shows you the methods he uses to get that iconic USMC paint scheme on your Pacific tanks. This one is so good, it's a two-parter so keep an eye out for the rest coming soon!

The one thing different about the USMC tankers was their use of improvised armour on their vehicles, especially wood planks to ward off magnetic mines. Given the Japanese propensity for suicide attacks with their much-feared Nikuhaku teams, the USMC started adding additional layers to their Shermans in an attempt to stop the incoming attacks.

Dan's really had some fun with this one as well, so let us know what you think! And please, don't forget to Like and Subscribe! We love that kinda thing!
