Jason,
 
Do The Dragon one. I started this one ages ago. It must be about three years ago but stopped when I couldn't find a good colour for the desert tan bit of the finish.
 
Would love to see one of them built.

Hi Mark,
 
Relish models have the US M4A1 in stock here
 
I've bought a few things from Graham at Relish, he's a top guy, great service

I agree then Jason - Dragon.
Colourwise, Desert Pink was locally manufactured so gives quite a bit of leeway for your own interpretation. XF-59 Desert Yellow has a nice pinkish tinge to it.

I've built that Dragon kit
 
Be warned the tracks are too long, you'll need to remove a link from each run. Also they tend to bend upwards over the top run so need gluing down, but nothing too taxing
 
For the portland stone, I used vallejo khaki brown with white:

I'm trying to get the bit and pieces for my Cyberhobby IDF M50 - anybody know of any aftermarket products for this, i'm not having much luck finding any.
 
Also, anybody know where i can still get the book titled 'The Lioness & Lion of the Line Vol.1' by Dr. Robert Manasherob - seems to be out of publication now and i can't find anywhere - it looks to be a good source material for my M50.

Chris - I've long fancied scratchbuilding a 1/15 M51 but that might be a bit ambitious
 
Failing that I have a few 1/35, 1/72 and 1/76 Shermans in the stash so should be able to come up with something to do
 
 
Patrick - these any help? M50
