xhelfix May Winner.

1/16th Sherman T34 calliope.

Mr xhelfix received this Sherman as an un-finished model with a false chassis, it was built in such a way as to disguise the tamiya HVSS to look like the VVSS gear, and it wasn't very good. Also the model had a lot of missing detail, storrage box and so on.

Mr xhelfix acquired a Mato metal chassis for the rebuild.
Added paint, decals and stowage.
The model is controlled via a Tamiya M4 DMD/MF.
The turret turns as normal, with the lifting and lowering of the gun controlling the launchers.

Sadly no build report on this forum.
