hey everyone, Ive finally finished up my first Sherman!!
This is Dragons Thunderbolt kit,made into a Korean war Sherman. Its mostly OOB except for the tracks ,which I stole from their 105mm kit. The mantlet dust cover made froma coffee filter, styrene rod for the frame .and masking tape for the snaps to hold it on. The infantry radio was actually in the kit, and the antannes were made into the simpler base mounts. Like I said, this is my first Sherman, so as far as the build goes, I know its not the most accurate. The Tiger face was handpainted except for the yellow portion.
More pics can be seenhere

For your first effort at a Sherman its excellent work Tim, and as always the weathering is spot-on.

Good luck with the contest.
