Light travels faster than sound. That's why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

Re: Different scale

Coming together.










Tell you one thing a lot easier to handle. LOL

What do you all think about the OD green?

A mixture of German Field gray and Buff, got it out of a mag.


Cheers

Re: Different scale

Looks great, Jeff! Man - that'd be cool to have in 1:6th scale!

Hope you keep us updated as you finish the project!

Have to agree the round hull early Sherman's were just plain mean looking,until they ran into the 88 MM.

Re: Different scale

I'm thinking of the utility of having the early Sherman hull in 1:6th - for both US and lend-lease subjects.

Damn you, Dragon and your Firefly...

Again - great job, Jeff!

Both Shermies look great. Although I don't like 1/35 scale -Waaay too tiny! LOL. Nice looking base too. I like how you made the stowage - would definitely work for larger scales too! Nice work on the models!
