Tanks are a favorite subject for scale modelers, sculptors, and other artists. Today we’re gonna share five scale model “tankers” whose work we admire.
Many of these are in 1/35 scale; several or are not. Now, in no particular order, five amazingly good artists whose ability to build, paint, and weather scale model tanks and scale model dioramas can only be marveled at. We don’t know a lot about most of these guys, we just admire their work and follow them on social media to watch for their latest efforts. All listed names are actually monikers on Instagram.
