Sherman M4 Normandy

Hi mates !

Tonight I started the last model I bought, the Sherman M4 "Normandy" by Dragon. The kit is amazing, like always : hundreds of parts, brand one-piece vinyle tracks, PE...

I pasted the road wheels (I don't know if there is another word for it, could the English native-speakers help me?), and I just pasted the lower hull, the rear and the front parts 5 minutes ago, the photos will come soon.







I highly recommend this kit !

Non les plaques de blindage sont du mauvais côté, la notice les indiquait comme ça... Mais j'ai résolu le pb, je les ai virées, je trouve que ça fiche en l'air toute la silhouette du Sherman !

So, base coat with Tamiya's Olive Drab, and highlights with Olive Drab + Buff.






Regarding the highlights, the real model looks really better than it does on the photos...

Hi

Looks like you are enjoying yourself and the kit is coming together very quickly.

Got to love that box art. I rate it as one of the best, worth having the kit just for the artwork. One of Dragon's best.
