1/72 Sherman II A

Recommended Posts

Another in the long line of 1/72 Dragon Shermans with many common parts shared by many kits. Included is a small PE fret but some of the kit parts are molded so finely, that the PE parts are hardly worth the bother, As a matter of fact, some of the kit parts look better, being more three-dimensional. I did mine as a 10th Royal Hussars mount in Italy in '44. I added the welded-on pipe lengths that apparently held local foliage for camouflage and handles on all the hatches and engine deck. The foliage are twigs from plants outside with some model RR foliage added. 

For those not familiar with "Sherman Speak", a Sherman IIA in American terms is a Sherman A1 (the cast hull version) with the VVS suspension and the T-23 turret with the 76mm gun.

Great build and in only 1/72d must be great to have young eyes.

Those "young" eyes are 70 years old, but have a really nice optivisor!

Very nice, Ron - love the 1/72 Dragon Sherman kits (the older ones).
