This is Tamiya's M4A3 Frontline Breakthrough kit as a 6th AD Sherman.I've added bolt and wingnut detail as well as details made from heavy foil. The headlights were drilled, painted and filled with clear acrylic laquer. Painted in Model Master enamels and weathered almost exclusively by airbrush with some pastel powder used in the end. Stowage from various sources.

Great job on the Sherman.

The dusty/dirty look great. However, a little comment could be that the tracks should be a little more dusty to fit the tank.

Thanks for sharing and good luck.

Very nice looking Sherman Mike, looks like its seen some real action, the only thing I can see is that the tracks look a bit too clean for the rest of the tank.
