Do you like Shermans?

November 14, 2012 · in Armor · 4 · 1.5K

I do. I used to hate them. I thought they were very ugly and brutish. I do love T-34s and thought they look very sleek and streamlined. Upon building my first sherman, I fell in love with them too and am in the process of building approx 16 different Shermans and yes...they're all different! Stevie.

  1. Any finished yet? An impressive line-up, probably just about enough to scare a Tiger at least a little bit 🙂 !


  2. Fantastic commitment! I hope that you'll get all of them finished. What's your strategy, building /painting all simultaneously, or one at a time?

  3. You know what...that's probably about half the Shermans I'm building at the moment along with about 20 T-34s, a few Panthers, Jagdpanther, 2 x SU-152s, 4 x KVs, 3 or 4 Panzer IVs, several Panzer IIIs and a whole lot more stuff. I might never get them finished. I have a few in primer waiting to be airbrushed, but I have had 4 houses in the last year and am moving again in the summer, so I may finally get them painted then, once I have a proper permanent set-up!

  4. I don't know how you guys do it...having multiple builds going at the same time that is. And YOU, Stevie, are absolutely bonkers to have that many WIP's at once. How on earth do you maintain your sanity? Or is that HOW you maintain your sanity? On the other hand, with a gazillion examples of the same kit, I guess it doesn't matter if you grab the wrong 'part', they ALL fit, right?
