    New Sherman hits the shelves....

    Tasca 1/35 Sherman M4A3 76mm...a simply gorgeous kit...it doesnt come much better than this guys....

    Naturally I have a very nice DML offering for the same kit...and also the venerable Italeri offering (which despite all its issues I will never get rid of) but the temptation to get this new Tasca gem will be oh soooo hard to resist....

    Despite of me sharing your No1 (with your venerable cousin Alex) basher spot, I've always admitted that I like Shermans, maybe because of the fact that ALL TANKS which are not SHERMANS are TIGERS/PANZERS to me lol!

    NO IM NOT GOING TO PICK ON YOU ON THIS ONE


    this is interesting as it can be modelled in other colours which are not olive drab.
    eg israeli with the big muzzle brake etc etc and also at last a good basis for loads of israeli and mid eastern conversions such as a decent m32 recovery

    Oh another Sherman that is nice Neutral , next in line there shall be guess what another Tiger Sad

    I fancy more Trumpeter and Branco for being brave and get out strange subjects and inprobable models that other brands never think off. Have to say this Sherman is stae of teh art, but hej was not the Italeri in the 70s and few years ago Dragon's ... so why they continue re-issuing the same subjects again and again [being a panzer or a sherman], apart the price tag!!!!

    Ah forgot for those like me who love a different Sherman then the usual OD ... look what comes out from Israel soon ...

    The Sherman is a beautiful tank clown but personally I prefer modern tanks, especially the ChallengerII Twisted Evil Twisted Evil
