Eric,

Great choice and very nice build. This one will be one more great addition to the Sherman parade we are having here. I really love the monster look of this sandbaged beast. I am sure it will look much greater once painted, so do not make us wait for so long, please.

Good work amigo.

I send my bergesherman to David petitpretz. I build the models and he paint it

I'm a lazy painter but i have started SU paint, and I try to finish mercedes 4500 flak painting for Saumur.
It's a challenge for me because I'm a very slow painter.

Do you go to Saumur ?
