M4A4 Sherman w/60LB rockets
Dragon kit 6041 which spent much time in the stash before finally getting built. One of the issues with this early release Dragon kit is the lower hull is about 5-6mm too long. It’s a fairly simple fix; get out the razor saw and remove 5mm from the rear of the lower hull, this moves the rear plate with idlers to a more accurate position for the M4A4 variant. M4A4’s are usually seen with straight return rollers on the bogies, the kit supplies the upswept roller arms. This issue was fixed by using a Formations resin bogie set. I also used a resin nose made by Chesapeake Model Designs, not that the kit parts were bad but the Chesapeake part was cool, and it was sitting in my parts box. For the most part, the rest of the kit was built from the box. Thanks for hanging around to view this Shermie!
