  1. I finished this a few weeks ago, but never got around to posting it on here. For those unfamiliar with Israeli tanks, this version of the M51 was a conversion, based on the M4A3 (76mm) Sherman. If you’re interested, the build can be found here; And finally, because a little while ago someone said that I should post some photos of all of my M51s, here they are. They are from left to right; Dagem Beth (Second Batch, or Type B). Dagem Gimmel (Third Batch, or Type C). Dagem Daleth (Fourth Batch, or Type D)). By my reckoning, I’ve got two more to build. Dagem Alef (First batch, or Type A), and a Dagem Gimmel based on a cast hull. Thanks for looking and any comments. John.
  2. Along with the original VVSS M1 Shermans, the Israelis also received a lot of HVSS Shermans, mainly from the French, which when they put them into service were dubbed “Super Sherman”. About year ago, I built an M1 using the Tamiya kit. This time, I am going to use the Tamiya M51 and substitute some of the parts with parts from the M1 kit such as the turret and engine deck. I'll also be using an AM main gun from RB Models along with their 12.7mm M2 Browning. The only set of decals that I know of for this tank are those made by Star decals, and I'm waiting on a set being delivered at the moment. Hopefully, this build will be more successful than my M60 build. So this is the tank, although, not exactly the same. Different markings and different track guard supports. Tamiya M1 Sherman. Tamiya M51. RB Models 76mm main gun and 12.7mm M2 Browning. As I said, the decals should (hopefully) be on their way from Sweden. I'll put some photos up later of where I am at now. John.
