Hello,

I didn't show it up until now but this is my last model completed last October.

This is my rendition of a famous photo showing a M4A2 Sherman tank of the 4th Tank Battalion, Company C, 4th Marine Division on Roi-Namu Island, Kwajalein Atoll, Marshall Islands, February 1944.

This kit needed quite a few things from various sources from resin bits, Tamiya parts, 3D help to he unavoidable scratch.
You'll find much more views and all the construction details at http://manu-military.e-monsite.com/page ... -1944.html

Thanks for watching
Manu

It looks very, very good. And for those that don't know, Fisher type refers to the fact that it was manufactured at the Fisher body plant in Flint Michigan. About an hour north of Detroit.

Nice work Manu, this is the first time I’ve spotted the wooden planks on the side of the Sherman
