Is this the old Monogram kit?

It's the Italeri kit-forgot to mention that. My first Sherman-built before Weenie One and the M4A3 early last month-end of january can't remember exactly. Learn as you go there are some issues-mainly the shell ejection port isn't faired in but I don't believe it detracts too much.

Nice. One point, the 47 degree A3 wet hulls didn't have the applique armor. And how did you get the rocket tubes so round? I have this kit and basically the tubes are egg shaped. Had to chuck them in the spares box and am looking for ideas.
Very nicely done.

See what I mean about learn as you go? I had no issues with the tubes. I made sure they lined up as they dried then rounded the ends with a xacto and file. I'm hoping the M4A3 76 I'm working on now will be better yet! But that one and a few others will have to wait 'till next month.

Hi,
Nice Sherm Mike, I guess I'll have to wait for italeri to re-release this version, none of those in stores as for the moment !
Unfortunately, Dragon AMOM Rules allow only for 2 entries per modeler per month so I think you'll have to choose 2 of your entries.

Cheers

Hi Mike,
Really like the finishes you achieve on your kits. Looks really good. Perhaps there was a crew out there that opted for additional protection despite the wet stowage. I've read/heard that some crews crammed so much ammunition inside that it pretty much negated the wet stowage anyway.
I'd go .

Excellent build MIke. I really like these oddball variants. And man you are a modeling machine! I'm lucky if I can get 3 or 4 done a year and you've done 3 in a month, not to mention your Tiger. I just wish I had the time and the motivation.
