The Tank that helped the Allies push back the Germans in World War 2. Not as strong as the German tanks, but what it lacked in power, made-up in numbers. And in the hands of a great General like Patton, it was a mighty sword.

This is a 1/35 scale Tamiya kit of the Early Version of the Sherman.

Looking good.

One tip if I may. The upper left tail light is red all the others are dark as they are blackout lights.

I just found this out and now have repainted my two Shermans. :P

Thank you for that information. I'll have to go back to my kit and corrected that. :)

Hi Felix,I love your builds and your background.Your attention to detail is great!!!
I do have one comment,I think the finish on the tank should be more of a matt finish.A little to shiny for a tank.In the pics, there is a glare on the turret that would be a giveaway to a german tank.
Just my opinion.
Go to the Fine Scale site to see what I mean.
Thanks,George
