The British Way...1/48 Sherman Firefly Ic

February 20, 2020 · in Armor · · 3 Comments


My dad´s next little armour project for diversion.
kit built oob, only added an antenna. Painted with AK Real Color British SCC15 Olive Drab.
It´s one of Tamiya´s older kits with a metal lower hull. Gives the model nice weight but makes aligning the suspension tricky because of the use of CA glue. The locating pins are metalones on the hull, so the bogeys aren´t always mounted in the correct angle.

B Sqn, East Riding of Yorkshire Yeomanry, 33rd Armoured Brig., February 1945 in the Ardennes

  1. Good job!
    Of all the Shermans, I like this one the most)). It is difficult to find it in 48th scale, someday it will happen)

  2. Nice clean built without tons of scratches and mud.
    Great work
