Sherman M4A3

Manufacturer: Battlefront
Genre: 1/100th WWII

Comments: I believe this particular mark of Sherman was used almost exclusively by the USA, but I've inducted it into the British army and painted it for duty in Sicily and Italy, about 1943.

I've used Vallejo 988 Khaki to represent the Light Mud paint used in that theatre. The hull machine-gun is a pin clipped short glued in place; the holes in the barrel-shroud are just painted in, though in retrospect it might have been better to use a toothpick or something rather than a brush. I haven't included a turret machine-gun yet, since I suspect it would just keep getting broken off; I may add a .30 Browning at some stage.
