Just to be sure... I just ordered an M-51 Super Sherman as built/used by the Israelis. May I assume this is allowed ?

Well just further to what Mish has said we were looking at the following criteria

Any Sherman Gun Tank

Any Sherman conversion so long as it was based on a Sherman Hull

I'm tempted by this one: http://www.track48.c...r...at=9&page=1. But I still have to make up my mind, I will build the firefly as soon as it will arrive home, and I will have plenty of time to decide what to build for the GB.

Well, Wikipedia tells me that the M-10 uses a Sherman hull so it's in also that would allow M-36 as they used the same hull.

Hi Guys,

Intrigued here, just bought the Academy 1:35 M4A2 Russian Sherman..

Will I be able to join in and build this straight out of the box? (As a Russian Tank)

I don't know much about tanks so don't know if this qualifies - but it will be another string to my bow ;)

All the best

Tuco :winkgrin:
