Old Dragon Sherman Firefly Mk1c hybrid #9037

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

Had fun with this one! The kit certainly had it's issues but still builds into a decent model with some modelling flare.

It's been built as a display piece for a veteran sherman radio operator of the east riding yeomanry and is a tribute to him really.

WIP link here: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234977297-old-dragon-135-sherman-firefly-1c-hybrid-9037-teaching-an-old-dog-new-tricks/

There's a couple of shots below that show the model without the track cleats highlighted in steel but the rest are after i've done it. Just used some of the best photo's i have of her really.

Anyway, enjoy :)

like her?.........I love her, she looks amazing!

I'd love to see some photos of this in B&W, just to add that extra touch of realism- that is one superb diorama that compliments a beautiful build.
