Atlantis 1/48 M-4 Sherman

This is part of the Land, Sea, Air gift set. It's the old Aurora Sherman and dates from back in the 60's. They have done a nice job cleaning up the molds and by and large, it generally looks like a Sherman. The figures, however, are kind of mushy with very poor faces. They're not even up to "green army men" standard. But, it was a fun trip down memory lane. The Atlantis kits would be good ones to use to introduce younger modelers to the hobby or even get "lapsed" modelers back in, or, as in my case, ones that are just tired of fiddling with dozens of microscopic parts and PE stuff.

Ah the childhood memories of the Aurora Easy 8 Sherman…. 😏 Looks good for its vintage. And your figures sure look better than I could ever do back then with those Testors paints & brushes. 😉 But if you can fix them, the tracks are on backwards. The base of the steel chevron V should be at the bottom and opening at the top of the links when viewed from the front.
