That looks cool Frankie :thumbup:

Now I've got to watch the film sometime later, I never noticed the odd wheels, nor can I remember those fenders lol.

There’s a lot of details that change throughout the film...I think they used 3 different tanks.. the .50cal changes from a std one to an aircraft style etc..so I’m using a bit of “artistic licence”...not sure if the wheels are right but I like the look :thumbup:

LOL to the wheels. It sounds like they used artistic license in the film ;) I'm guessing you just got carried away with your printer lol.

I like the title Frankie! Looks good so far. How about a special commander figure?

This build is definitely putting off some positive vibes. Maybe you should take a break from Shermans, and make the T-34 Tiger mockup, too!

I was seriously considering doing that. Well, if a Pan Tiger can sell. . . . .

I had a resin head from a figure that was available many years ago, so I used that on a home made body... :thumbup:
