    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,:)
    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:

    Hi, are you going to build it sob or do any upgrades, because there is a lot you can do to this one yourself if you like scratch building, good luck with the build. :)

    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:
