    Prosit Alex, the turret looks great. All your weatehring jobs are fantastic and this is no exception. The only thing i would do if it were mine would be to put in some more highlights on the fabric part between the barrel and the body to make it a bit more weathered and used. But this is just my opinion judging by the photos.

    btw
    ive even found a pic of this type of shermie in snow covered environment in italy december 1944
    its from the 760 battalion of the 5th army

    sam the tank in picture has no snow on it so its irrelevant

    sammy lest???????????????????????????????????????????????

    it took 3 people, me the doc and sammy to build and paint 1/3 of a tank with 1 whole and 2 half crews more than a month immagine how long it would take if we where to build something on the par of bob lettermans logistics...........infinity perhaps?

    hey guys,

    finally it is finished....I enjoyed every bit of it to say the least Smile

    my thanks go to alex and matthew who made this project come true =]

    Now the story is short and sweet....the tanks crew of this Sherman decided to come out of the tank and see what's going on xmas day....one of them decides to grab a shovel and make a snowman Razz and the 3 of them start looking at him and discussing how cute he is ^-^...

    any comments and critique are always welcome SmileSmile

    Sam =]
