This is a very old one, close to 20 years old that I use for painting practice. I have two good Tamiya kits that I am not game to try yet. One is a Tiger with individual track links and choice of colour schemes, one being a winter coat scheme which I am told is the hardest one to paint well. This is my practice on the poor old Sherman. Made up a diluted wash with Tamiya Flat but it looks like I need a bit more practice.

Nice build! Tamyia kits go together very well and with little or no problems. This Sherman looks like the "105" version.

Personally, I hate individual track link assemblies. For all the extra work, I just can't appreciate the added detail, but that is my problem...lol.

I can deal with one piece tracks anytime!

Looks good John, and the black-and-white photo is especially effective. I must admit I'm always bewildered by the number of Sherman types/variants scratch
