Hi Wayne

You had hard work.
I felt your eagerness for modelling.
That makes your wonderful "Hybrid Rocketed-Sherman".
Thanks show it. I like it!

By the way, me also build a roketed sherman that
rocket I used from Hasegawa 1/48 Typhoon Mk.1B.
But that Typhoon still in a box.

Best egards

VERY Cool!

Hi Wayne;

I am LOVING your tulip rocketed Firefly! This is a great effort, you have some serious scratching skills, Mate.

Very, VERY well done! I love to open a thread & see a couple of cool Shermans.

Keep up the great work, Wayne. Always a delight to see someone who loves Shermans as much as I do.

Cheers Mate, Pat

Wayne,

Good work on boht of your composite Shermans. The small hatch looks promising -and rare indeed- and the Tulip is quite cool too.

Are you planing to add crew to your biulds? I think that is the final touch they need to look really great.

Keep us posted
Lu

That was the Tulip Firefly that I wanted to do! You beat me to it. Oh well, you did a much better job at it than I would have. GREAT WORK!!
