Scratchbuilding a US M2 Medium Tank in 28mm Part8

Picture 38 Adding a Tank Commander:  As you have seen the project evolved as it went along.  About this point I had ordered some Old Glory WW1 Americans for the force, and decided one of the vehicles needed a tank commander.  I made new hatch for the one turret and began to cut open the door.

Picture 38A Adding a Tank Commander:  The commander will be this prone OG loader.

Picture 38B Adding a Tank Commander:  The figure has been cut in half and a brass wire support rod added.  The hatchway to the turret has been trimmed and a new hatch door added.  A couple of gizmos from the parts box dress it up.  A tube spacer has been added in the turret to support the figure.

Picture 38C Adding a Tank Commander:  Some tools and bits from the spare parts box and some green stuff add some stowage to the tops of the tanks. 

Picture 38D Adding a Tank Commander:  The tank commander had his rear-end re-built with green stuff and some belt work added.
