Some tank destroyer stuff for my late war americans.

M10 GMC from UM Models with metal crew from Steel 72 and customize stowage mainly in green stuff.
M5 3 inch ATG in metal from Under The Bed with metal crew from Wartime Miniatures.
M1 57 mm ATG in metal from SHQ Miniatures with metal crew from Wartime Miniatures.
More images of the models in progress:

Outstanding weathering on that M10. One quibble though, I don't think you should refer to the 57mm as a Tank "Destroyer" in 1944. A tank "annoyer" maybe. 😉

Excellent work!
Actually by 1944 the American 57mm gun had a discarding sabot round APDS supplied by the British which made it more effective. Not sure how many they had but it helped.
