Whilst waiting for funds to come so I can purchase a Firefly Conversion Kit i thought I'd build one of my 1/72 Sherman's.

Good morning!
Very pleased to see that someone else likes to build research models to sort out details and paint schemes before going to work on the 1/16 scale jobbies. 1/35 scale is really nice but they start to take up room after a while so 1/72 is a good alternative! Excellent job on the Firefly.
regards,
Painless

Thanks Son of a gunner! It's a Plastic Soldier Company Kit, quite good kits! :D

Thanks Painless, yeah needed something to keep me occupied while I wait.

Loving those KV-1s! Especially the captured one. Is that the 1/16?

Good morning,
That quad of KV-2 s goes up to 1/24 in scale with the largest being the VS tanks version in IR. The real Beauty is the 'Palace' in 1/16 ( sorry but I never pass up a chance to show it off ;o)

Thanks :thumbup:

Well, near the end of the war, they tried to make all four tank units contain two fireflies and two non fireflies. Therefore, your three tanks work especially if they already lost one tank earlier on :thumbup:
