Feel free to discuss anything and everything to do with tanking here!

Postby AshMann » Wed Feb 08, 2017 6:30 am

Here are some variations of what i could turn my Sherman build into, out of all of these, the M4A3E4, M4A3 76 and the Persherman are the more likely ones i can build. Tell me which one is best.

Personally I like the look of the second one, I know v little about Sherman's my opinion is based purely on looks and I like the turret on the second.

Looks in proportion and it's my favourite model Sherman.

I quite like how it looks actually.. Would the pershing turret fit on the sherman without any modifications to the turret or turret ring

Hi
A while ago I di a scratch build of the one off prototype from Aberdeen proving grounds of the Sherman with a M26 turret it was a simple mod to do to fit the turret to a HL top.

I agree with Jackalope. The "Yellow 14", if you name it as they do some German fighter planes. Hey, there's an idea - the Yellow 14 Sherman vs the Yellow 14 Bf109! One of those crazy psychotic duels in the desert between machines that were never meant to fight each other! Next thing you know, Hollywood will come knocking wanting to make a film out of it (starring Jean Claude Van Damme!). Just don't forget your mere mortal buddies here once you get rich and famous. :haha: :haha: :haha:

Now you just have to build the plane in 1/16th! 8)

They say RC Tankers have very active imaginations. Or am I just crazy? Hmmm. I'll have to get back to ya on that. :/ @) :crazy:

A duel like that would be badass! i can already see the bullets flying. Also about the thing about RC Tankers having very active imaginations is very true in my opinion!

Is that a build you have done already or is it just testing if the turret fits?
