Very nice job with the details, but on the left side some wheels are not touching the ground and the first boogie looks like misaligned. Again, very nice work.

Dragon really does make a nice Sherman and your added details certainly help. Particularly the strips of styrene running along the hull bottom, parallel with the running gear. Nice detail.

Also, your pics shot from ground level give this monster the appearance of being a larger scale and looks great. Nice job!

Cheers,
Peter

Thanks.
Yes, the first boogie looks odd, but I didn't saw it after gluing it and later it was simply too late (and I didn't want to damage the whole kit). Proboably it will be hiden when I'll aply some mud to the susspension.

Actualy thise are not styrene strips... It's an ordinary paper thickened with glue.
