Built and painted the new 1:50th scale M4A3 Sherman 76mm (Frontline Games new redesigned kits by PMD). This is how it started:

I really enjoyed building/painting this kit, tried some new techniques on it and am very happy with the way it came out. I am now building 3 M4A3 75mm for a Kelly's Heros game.

Very nice! Didn't know they did "multi-media" kit by adding the wire for the tow loops. Nice touch.

Like the way the tracks sag a little between the return rollers – nice touch.


Looks great!!!

Thanks, I am just about done with my 3 M4A3 75mm Shermans. Because they go together so quickly I can spend more time on the modeling aspect of the building process.

I added a lot of stowage to them; I will post them when they are done.

Fred, I love the sag in the tracks and because they are metal you can do a lot with them in that regard.
