Looking to start a firefly project so I'm looking to acquire sherman parts. I'm after metal chassis, wheels, tracks, basically anything metal for a sherman. If anyone has a Sherman Firefly conversion kit I would be interested. I have a Merit 88mm and built Tamiya Pershing I can swap for the right stuff.
Thanks

While I don't own any of that stuff, I can recommend Forgebear's shop. I can see some thing you might need:

Metal Bogies

Metal Hatches and detail parts

Metal Firefly Barrel

And best of all, a DSG Resin Conversion kit for the Firefly.

Hello,
I'm aware of Dave at Forgebear, bought stuff from him before. Ideally trying to find second hand before I splash the cash on new stuff.
Dont fancy extending a hull so going to avoid that conversion.
Thanks.

You will be wanting the a1 parts then. But will still need a low bustle turret still. Once again Dave is about the best place for the mato parts.

Extending the hull is a pain but worth it in the end.

I may have something you need but the hull and deck are mato plastics. The wheels sprockets idlers and bogies are all metal. Only thing it doesn’t have is a turret.

It has been prepped and painted in to the project it was going to be though
