great project! I wanna follow your work.
I think it wont be good to use the Academy Trunks. They should be different to the M4, but Im not sure.......

Cheers
Peter

m4 normandy

ok looks like the vehicals you can do out of the box are on page 36 concord publications The Sherman at war [2] us army Eto43-45. The decals for cannon ball 70th tank battalion are cool and i am looking at the pic as i type this vehical got bogged down on utah on landing day.But she was recoverd that same day and put into action sans her waiding trunks.
