For some unknown reason, I like the Polish AFVs in WWII very much. This is my little Polish M4A1(DRAGON kit no. 7304), according to the instruction sheet, it was of the 2nd Armoured Regiment, Polish 1st Armoured Division. Basically I built this Sherman OOTB, but added some home-made accessories with epoxy putty. Hope you will enjoy it.
Any comments will be welcomed!

that this is 1/72nd. It looks amazing. I would have guessed 1/35th. Very well done! Stevie.

Jack,

That looks really good. I like the finish, which I know is difficult to attain in 1/72nd.

One thing you may want to consider (perhaps if you do another one) is that the bolt strip at the top of the transmission is actually part of the transmission casting - there should not be a gap or seam between it and the transmission housing.

Hi Chuck,
Thank you very much for your advice!
I have never paid any attention to that place before,
one of the reason might be that I am actually a Darksider more than a OD Guy

Next time I should put a coin or a ruler on the side of my small scale model while taking pictures.
