Thank you for your submission Mr Painless :thumbup:

There's always one to spoil ones fun, and show you what's wrong with your turret ;)

Good morning, Doc,
I have always loved the early MATO Sherman. Yep, it is too tall and kind of chunky but for the time it was released, it was the BOMB for RC Tankers...reasonably priced with good components and able to be detailed and\or modded into other vehicles. It was not long afterwards that HL got into the mix with their M4A3 and stuff slowly started to steamroll from there.
regards,
Painless

Hi Painless. It still is a good model for the price.
Yeah, my bank balance has noticed how the Sherman has "steamrolled" into my life lol.

Oh dear, there really is no hope for us.
But a nice organised model display you have there Painless :thumbup:
Mind you, I'm a lot further behind you, I have a LOT to work on and paint.

I just happened by the Submission thread. I sure am glad that I am not the one that judges any winner. I must admit that I am, yes, a Shermanaholic!
I must say though that I do so love the M8! When I was a kid growing up, I had a neighbor that served as a crew member on an M8 such as this. I remember building a 1/35 kit of it then, with his input, etc.

Welcome aboard Mr Sub and Mr Midnight. Thank you for your submissions :thumbup:

@ Mr mutt71, if you take the time to cast a vote in a few days time, technically you will be judging like the rest of the voters :thumbup: therefore please take another look within the seven days starting on the 8th and be so kind as to cast a vote for your favourite submission :thumbup:

@ Carl. Yes there is :thumbup: and I'm very thankful, I was getting a little worried :{

@ Herman. You had your account hacked by happy tank or Wardog?

Congratulations to FredtheFrench as this month's TOTM winner :clap: :clap: :clap:

It was a very close competition to the end.

And I must congratulate the runners up, they were all superb models with great attention to detail :clap: :clap: :clap:
Although my humble offering wasn't so great, pretty basic really and still with the tracks the wrong way around lol.

Thank you all, participants and voters alike for a great competition this month :clap: :clap: :clap:

Good evening all,
Congratulations Fred! Well deserving of the Win! Beautifully detailed and functional. All of the Entries had something good to say about their subject matter ( Yes, Mick, including yours, Sir ) and it was a lot of fun to participate.
