  1. I have been thinking about building one of these for a while now. The Coldstream Guards made these alterations to some of their tanks as they approached the German border in 1945. Taking an Idea that the Germans had used of fitting rockets to an AFV, they attached 60 Lb rockets and their launch rails (from Typhoon aircraft) to the side of their Sherman tanks to deal with bunkers and other targets of the Siegfried Line. The main problem with this conversion is that there is not a lot of detail available, quite a few grainy photo's of tanks fitted with them, but no clear pictures or details of the rail fitting to the turret. Looking at all available information I have three Sherman tanks to use, Firefly Mk 1c (hybrid), Firefly Mk Vc and Mk V 75mm. I will use the Mk V 75mm as I have it in the stash and will probably make the Firefly Mk 1c (hybrid) later. The 60 Lb rockets will come from the Bronco Staghound kit, along with an RB Models barrel and some Bronco workable track links. Let the fun begin.
  2. Eduard's boxing of the Lovely Tasca / Asuka Sherman. When it came out it was by far and away the cheapest way to get a Tasca Sherman, so I got a couple Started by making up the lower hull, and adding some Mr Surfacer 1000 to add more cast texture as it's a bit soft While I was at it, added the texture to the turret as well Peter
  3. Started Today - a lovely Tasca / Asuka Sherman - early direct vision version After 4 hours work, I have working suspension Peter
  4. Finished today - lovely kit. Painted with Tamiya acrylics, weathered with Oils, Oilbrushers and Pigments Peter
  5. As light relief after the Blenheim I started the Tasca Luchs - really nice kit, 2 days quick work gets me here Peter
  6. Sherman Firefly Vc C. Squadron 20th NZ Armoured Regt. Italy, Spring 1945 Almost two years since I last finished/posted an AFV build... Well as this is written it's exactly five years since we moved here to NZ and by coincidence here's a Kiwi subject. Tasca's superb Sherman Firefly Vc with kit decals and a few extras - RB barrel, Verlinden stowage and Royal Models radio/storage bustle - The markings are for a vehicle from C Squadron 20th (NZ) Armoured Regt. in Italy right at the end of the war. From the outset I had in my mind exactly how I wanted it to look and (for once), got precisely what I was after. Not muddy just very, very dusty. I spent sometime researching articles and opinions on the late war British 'Drab' colour and most books/commentators seem to agree it was virtually the same as US Olive Drab but faded to a much greener hue than the American colour so that's what I aimed for - whether I achieved that is for others to say. On top of the self mixed Tamiya acrylic paint there's some dry-brushing with oils, chipping and scratches, an oil-dot wash to get the streaking and just two tones of Mig pigments to get the dusty look. Now that it's done I am very pleased with it, so much so that I've dug-out an Academy M18 Hellcat that I started around eight years ago to sit alongside it - similar gun y'see !! - you'll see that in a few weeks. As ever thanks for taking the time to look and/or comment and please feel free to make any criticism or ask any questions. AFN. Ian.
  7. So after the smashing M60 build that I undertook, I have decided to have a go at the old Tamiya M4A3 kit. Its an older moulding from the late 80's but still builds quite well with a few extras. Using the Tasca tracks and suspension units for this one as they are more detailed than the stock items and the rubber band tracks are probably one of the best I have seen. The work so far. The Tasca suspension units are quite time consuming to put together but very well detailed. More later folks. Dan
