Sherman Vc Firefly "Velikye Luki"

Post  Andy J on Sun Sep 01, 2013 8:27 pm

The second Sherman I'll be building for this GB. Likely this will be started next year as I do have a lot on the workbench at the moment. However it is my intention to finish this one for the 8th August 2014 as this date marks the 70th anniversary of Trooper Joe Ekins (ably commanded by a Lt. A James Cool ) bringing to an end one of the Nazi regime's propaganda poster boys.

The kit I'm using, this is likely the best match for Velikye Luki and apart from a turned aluminum barrel and a set of T62 tracks this will be built out of the box. I scored a set of Bison decals with the correct markings from an excellent chap on Missing Lynx.



Parts plus the decals

Hiya Andy:

It is gonna be great seeing a Tasca/Azuka Sherman come together. Not to mention a Firefly.

Well I was going to start this one today, but Honey had taken over my chair despite me putting the box on there to stop her from doing exactly that Rolling Eyes
