Added some decals, the larger stars on the hull sides are streight off the Sherman sheet, they are the smaller of the two stars supplied in the kit.

The numbering had to be made up from two decals.

The smaller star on the transmision cover and even smaller one on the rear fender had to be cut to size, the numbering on the opposite fender, again made up from two decals.

Finally, I scanned a still shot from the movie and made my own decal of the posters on the hull side, a bit fuzzy close up, but from a general view point, not too bad.

BFN :wave:
Do you have any Idea what those posters were supposed to be? I have a set on mine, and was told they're Not French.
