Developed in America in 1944 with a view to landing it on the D-day beaches this derivative of the Sherman tank was designed as a blockbuster to deal with beachhead fortifications. The redesigned turret featured a 105 mm howitzer and two 7.2-in[...]
Just built these 2 for my son who wants to build a "D-Day" themed diorama (meaning i'll end up attempting it)
Straight from the box, few parts (but some very tiny). The only thing i wish i had changed is on the Jeep. That is the supports for the[...]
Thought I might share my older work from last year, this is the M4A2 Sherman from Academy, in 1/35 scale.
I understand that how 'weathered' for a working tank could be controversial. Despite that, I just wanted to make mine look special. Hey i[...]

I made this a while ago put forgot to post it. Since I only had wood at the time, it was used for the base and the details. Both the Sherman and Anti tank gun are from Tamiya.
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 fro[...]
