    Hi all this will be my next build. It looks like it is a typical Tamiya kit straight forward construction it has clear parts for the commanders copula and some parts have a cast texture already added.

    Hi all here's the first part of my Sherman build I have started on the running gear and lower hull. The only problem I have had is that every road wheel and return roller needed a seam sanding off, the lower hull and suspension went together without a problem.

    Hi all well finally got a chance to get all the sub assemblies done. Ready for priming. The only thing I've added is new hatch handles and a couple of tie down points on the rear deck.

    I get all excited when something comes along and someone starts a new build. I was watching Kelly's heroes the other day and now I have seen this Colin I'm thinking of more Sherman's abs the scene of the 3 coming our the tunnel
    And seeing as I'm on the AFV mode why not
    Wife's gonna go nuts

    Sounds like a good idea Robert. I'm sure someone does a figure set of oddball and his crew
