well this is the one,I,m going to do for this Allied GB,
and my very first Sherman,;) as you all mostly know I do,German ,Russian,:D
will be using the miniart Norman ,dio base ,
liking this one,as it dose have a full crew,and very nice bits and bob,s already
I got this from a swap meet late last year,and the chap must of had the same idea,
as doing it as a British one ,so got lucky with the Bison decal set as well,:smiling3:
well hope you like my pick hear,:rolleyes:

Go for it! ;)

It looks like a high quality, flash free kit, that Sherman one.

Like the Miniart dio base (they make good gauge 1 railroad backgrounds as well!) :rolleyes:

well an update on this one,
as you can see I have started the tank,been working on it the last few morning before going out,
a very strange build,as its ,so different for a Panzer,or T34 ,what I mostly do,;)
so very unfamiliar with it,an interesting build as well,
you can see were,I,m up too,:rolleyes:
I like to do the wheels and running gear on the sprue,then put them on,so next to start them,
and get the lower hull,painted,o_O
happy with how my street has turned out,still a little work to be done,on it,
still thinking on getting some more figures,as well,been dwelling on that for a few days,:oops:
well hope your enjoying liking my progress on this one,:confused:
