  1. The Kangaroo is temporarily sidelined for now, so I’ve been looking in the stash to find something that I can build whilst working on my new room. And guess what? I decided on a Sherman, only this time it’s 1/48th scale. I have the Hobbyboss kit of the M4A1 (76mm) and by chance it contains decals for an IDF version. It’s the same tank which Star Decals depict on one of their 1/35th sheets. Trouble is, I can’t find any photographic info on this tank, so a lot of it is going to be guess work. One thing that troubled me though with the kit is the fact that the turret is the one with the large round loader’s hatch. Now every photo and drawing that I have seen of IDF M1’s show them with oval hatches. Fortunately, I also have the Hobbyboss M4A3 with HVVS, and this does have the turret with oval loaders hatch, so happy days. Sadly, what neither of them have is the exhaust deflector, so I’ll just have to fudge one. This is the decal sheet instructions showing the IDF markings (Actually, there are markings for two IDF tanks, but the instructions don’t mention that). If anyone has any info on the tanks with these markings, I would be very grateful. Hopefully, I’ll get started on this over the weekend, so I’ll be back when I have something to show. John.
  2. I know that I said that I would put this one on a base, but I have run out of display space in my cabinets, so this one has got to go into a box until I have more space. So, this is one that I built a few months ago. It’s based on Hobbyboss’ M4A1 (76mm), and M4A3E8 (Korean version). This build log can be found here; Thanks to all those who took the time to comment in the WIP, and thanks for looking. John.
