Don't be shy people, we don't bite. Brent made the effort to photograph his built, write the review, and submit it. The occasional 'nice one Brent' comment would not be out of place.

There is a suprising amount of detail on the kit for a 1/72 model, manufactures are certainly doing the scale justice with there new releases

thanks for sharing Brent

cheers

Gday Brent
A well planned and executed build, and great photography adds to an enjoyable read. Some bonzer detail at this scale, and also some major bad points! Thanks for letting us know a little more about the Tulip vaersion of the Sherman, which until now was little known by me....
Cheers
Brad

Thnx for the comments gents,

Despite the issues this still makes into a very nice model (so dont be put off) - it just takes a bit of care.

As an aside I've just made up an M4E8 HVSS suspension for use with one of Ken Overbys M51 resin conversion kits and found the E8 suspension even trickier. I'd be interested to hear from anyone else that may have made one to see what they think .........

cheers
Brent
