I’ve noticed a strong lack of Spare Parts. Is that intended?

No, it is not. This problem will solve itself with time. Many players have several dozens of vehicles in their Garages, so they don’t have enough Spare Parts for the entire vehicle fleet. But you will gradually collect enough Spare Parts to unlock new slots for purchased tanks in time.

Yikes, I wonder how expensive that would be.

One thing I noticed about the black bottle Testors glue is its very agressive. It melts the plastic together very quickly and if you use too much you will make ugly seam lines.

thanks for the heads up - I've not used this glue before.

Oh man. I’m getting excited to get going. Seeing as how we have not had anyone else chime in about wanting to build with us, when do you two want to start?

The fine precision applicator for this bottle really cuts down on the mess which is why I like this stuff so much.

I will be out of town for a week starting on Tuesday - so I really cant start until Dec 1 or so.     

 

What do I need for paint?   I need to be cost conscious, so I might skip building and painting the Tank Commander.

December 1 works for me. 
 

I recommend tamiya xf-51 khaki drab, instead of what the instructions call out olive drab. That is the one jar you’ll need to run through your airbrush which I recommend the tamiya paint.The rest of the color call outs are for stuff like hand tools, tracks, tank commander etc. those can be hand painted and I recommend Vallejo acrylics for those. Many of ranks were assembled and painted last, hand tools and all receiving a shot of olive drab. The beauty of the Sherman build is the simplicity of the paint scheme.

Somewhere around Dec 1 works for me.
