M-1 Sherman = Academy M-51 & Dragon M4A3 (Wet) kitbash

Post  Tankbuilder2 on Fri Feb 15, 2013 1:09 am

Shalom.

I discovered that the leftover parts from my M-51 Academy & Dragon M4A3 kits can be combined to build an IDF M-1 Sherman.

I'm going to build this concurrent with my M-51 Welded Hull build as I wait for parts or assemblies in the M-51 Welded Hull build to cure or dry.

Since I'm using the exact same kits I guess I can also use the same start and kit photos.

Here they are.

Cheers from Peter

Hi again TB2 Very Happy :

It is great seeing things like this. I think maybe it is seeing all the diffrent colored plastic that just does something to me What a Face .

Shalom Gary.

It will be two fun builds for me.

Do you remember the old FROG three colour kits?

Shalom.

I was going through my Sherman kits and in one of them I found this styrene after-market working VVSS suspension. I forget who made it, AFV Club possibly. I've decided I'll use it on my IDF M-1 Sherman.



I guess I'm all ready to start building now.

Cheers
