  1. You have no idea how long i've searched for this! Mamy thanks! I couldn't find it anywhere. Maybe I've searched by wrong word. I'm going to try scratchbuilding them. Thanks once again!
  2. I managed to get M4A3 parts without buying new kit. So after few surgeries early M4 looks like below. What I've done already: -new wire handles -horn above gun -M4A3 engine deck and rear engine doors -correct cast surface on divverential cover -additional sockets for fuel cans on turret -new rear plate with corrected angle of it -torsion bar/counterbalanced hinges for engine doors -late commander cuppola with single hatch DSCN4919 by Arti Kapi, on Flickr DSCN4920 by Arti Kapi, on Flickr DSCN4921 by Arti Kapi, on Flickr DSCN4922 by Arti Kapi, on Flickr
  3. Nope, no gun lock. I'm going to put this model on a small dio using photo below: i153558 by Arti Kapi, on Flickr ...so it's hard to tell which one is it Tommorow I will get T51 tracks. Today finally I'll show what was done already.
  4. Well, I'm a SF modeller. Word "accurate" gives me a headache I know that this can be Hollywood Sherman or mock up and I can assure you-I only want my childhood tank without going nuts over it
  5. I know, these are very good points...but...well...call it as you want.... Now I'm 33..."Tank" was one of the first movies that my parents allowed me to watch from start to begining (next was "Top Gun" and "Final Countdown"). I have a big sentiment to this particular movie and I really want a model of this Sherman. This is a whole reason - just sentiment and a nice memories from childhood.
  6. ...but M4A3 model from Tamiya with 105 mm instead of m4A375 mm is better...because of single commander hatch. I will have this hatch, engine deck and exhaust at once
  7. So...I got an inexpensive solution I have hobby shop near my home where both Shermans are available Many thanks for everyone
  8. You're right! The one from movie has a number on turret. Sherman from museum photos doesn't! There is no cast numer there! There are two different tanks. Okay , how to model the one from museum photos? Hull from this one: https://www.mojehobby.pl/products/U.S.-Medium-Tank-M4-Sherman-Early-Production.html ...with rest from this: https://www.mojehobby.pl/products/US-Medium-Tank-M4A3-Sherman-75mm-Gun-Late-Production.html OR, buy this one, to model exact tank from movie. There are a lot of unused parts to other versions. Only exhaust deflector needs to be scratchbuilt: https://www.mojehobby.pl/products/British-Army-Sherman-3-Mid-Production-with-Cast-Drivers-Hood.html I've read an article on Armorama...that there are no model of this Sherman...Are they right? I'm more into S-F, I know nothing about Shermans Some screens from movie: i153558 by Arti Kapi, on Flickr capture6xva2.5218 by Arti Kapi, on Flickr capture6rsnpf2.6180 by Arti Kapi, on Flickr capture6vww9.695 by Arti Kapi, on Flickr the-tank by Arti Kapi, on Flickr
  9. So M4 from Asuka as linked on first post is ok but I have to change some details like engine deck right?
  10. That was my first shot. Unfortunately, there is no such 1/35 model that has enlargered front hatches and additional armor on them. So I'm asking... Only Asuka set mentioned above has them. But this is not M4A3. I've outlined these areas on photo. zaznaczenie by Arti Kapi, on Flickr
  11. Hello, I'd like to start my first tank model in my modelling history. I want to make a miniature of Sherman from "Tank" movie from 1984 with James Garner. And of course I have a problem. I know that it is M4A3, I've read about it. But I have no idea which set I can use. It looks like this one: https://exito.sklep.pl/pl/p/ASUKA-TASCA-35032-135-US-Medium-Tank-M4-Sherman-Late-Fay/32917 ...but it's late M4 This is real one, Sherman from exactly this movie. _BrzEg8gBmk___KGrHqUOKi0EvPW0knWWBL1N1_jHJw___3 by Arti Kapi, on Flickr _BrzEiVwB2k___KGrHqIOKjIEvNqjcYH9BL1N1E_TuQ___3 by Arti Kapi, on Flickr _BrzEkZw_Wk___KGrHqIOKkIEvOEh1_4hBL1N1Kw5oQ___3 by Arti Kapi, on Flickr 05_M4_A3_75mm_SHERMAN by Arti Kapi, on Flickr Which set can I buy to model exactly this tank? Guys, help!
  12. Hello! I have a question about Revell Voyager - how put decals on windows? Cut from sheet, water, and then put on back of windows usual way but backwards? It will work despite glue on decal isn't on front? Any help will be apprieciated
  13. Nothing special, to be honest Very subtle weathering, or more likely "space-dust-ing" Some chipping but again, very subtle. Of course dark wash, just because I like it I thought a lot about painting it. I've figured that Gundams can't be just painted in bright color. If it is paint, then the would be chipped and scratched to naked metal in more that 80% of surfaces. It's more likely just material in bright colors. So chips can't be just steel, more like lighter shade of base color. That are my first thoughts
  14. Greetings, It's time for my first Gundam. I'm scarried as h..., I don't wanna to ruin sucha beautiful set but well...I gotta make Gundam finally... First photos right after I'll be back at home
  15. Hasegawa's Arcadia - model close to perfect, great fit, fantastic details. Painted as usual, Tamiya and Gunze.
