Four new Shermans – the liberation of Europe has started…
Most of the stowage are from Goffy, the extra jerry cans are SHQ.
Two Armourfast (to the left) and two Revell.
Showing all seven Shermans that I have painted this last couple of weeks, nice and dusty.
More Shermans to be shoot to pieces by Pak40’s lurking in the boscage. Not long ago I finished the first three and has now painted seven. I started to build three more, but these where M4-A3E8 and didn’t enter service in Europe until December ’44 (I later found out). 2014 will not be the year where I use time on stuff that I cannot use here and now, so those are put back in their boxes and will be there until we enter Germany. I has now ordered some PSC Shermans, that hopefully are here before the weekend.
I actually ordered a really big bunch of stuff this time (I hope my girlfriend doesn’t read this), a box of PSC Sdkfz. 251’s, two Tiger II with Porsche turrets from Trumpeter, a single Sherman M4 also from Trumpeter that will get a Dozer blade, a box of PSC StuG’s, a box of PSC Panthers, two diecast Jagdpanzer IV from Easy Model, two diecast Wespe’s from Altaya, one diecast Panhard 178 also from Altaya and finally a Spitfire and a Typhoon both from Academy… Adding to these I also bought a Dragon Hummel and a box of German Artillery, including a horse tow and two 10,5 guns. After this I only need a few pieces for my US vs. German Normandie missions (it will start all over when I am going to buy vehicles for my unpainted british army).
While I wait I think I will paint these little fellows:
Say hello to Jimmy, Glenn, Bing and Tommy, the noise from them will be sweet music to the infantry fighting their way through the bocage.
