Italeri 1/35 M4A1 Sherman.
This is the second armor model I built after returning to the hobby. It is also my first Sherman. Was inspired to build this one after reading “Breakout at Normandy”. I found a Testor’s boxing of the Italeri kit for $15.00. A buddy of mine, who is a treadhead and Shermanoholic, donated a Tank Workshop resin turret and a set of Dragon bogies from his spares. I used a very old issue Eduard photo-etch set and a whole lot of scratch-built details to improve the kit. Sandbags were made from Crayola’s “Model Magic” air drying modeling dough.
