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.
