Sherman III 3CLY Sicily landings


Recommended Posts

Dear all,

 

Please find below some images of my recently finished 1:72 Heller Sherman III (M4A2) of the 3rd County of London Yeomanry (3CLY) 'Sharpshooters' as it appeared during the Sicily landings in 1943.

 

Although not indicated in the instructions, the Heller kit has all the parts to build an early M4A2, although for this build I also needed the sand shields and deep wading gear from Dan Taylor Modelworks. The wading trunks for the Sicily landings were a bit shorter than the ones used in Normandy, so I replaced the etched trunks with new ones from thin plastic sheet.

The decals are also from Dan Taylor, as well as some stowage, and this was complemented with stuff from O3D and Black Dog.

 

I hope you like it.

 

Peter

Neat little model, and very interesting conversion from the Heller kit (which I find almost equal to the Dragon offerings).

Dan Taylor Modelworks is a great source of inspiration!
