1/48 Tamiya Sherman M4A1

I really like the look of an early Sherman. The kit has a metal cast hull to give it more weight. There was quite a bit of filling needed between the plastic part and the metal hull. Other than that, it was a pretty easy kit to build.

I used different shades of Olive green from Vallejo to make a solid colour more interesting. I added some stowage parts from Legend M4A1 set to make it a bit busier.

  1. Amazing work, Thomas!
    And exceptional weathering!

  2. I too have a soft spot for the early cast hulled Shermans. Yours makes me want to get going on one of my own. Very nicely done!

  3. A cast hull like the real one. I bet it makes everything sit down on the ground all nice and flat, sure looks as though it does. Nice work.
