M4A3 (76) W Sherman Thunderbolt VI, winter 1944

This kit is based on Meng’s M4A3 with a small number of replacement parts, which was detailed in my build log. The model is a based on a reference photo dated winter 1944, probably when Abrams was on his way to the Bastogne.

This whitewash scheme had been rendered in different books but the actual photos are scant, my rendition is based on references in Sherman: An American Miracle book as well as different color plates.

The kit is very good sans the completely ridiculous tracks. In retrospect I should have gone with better wires, but this type of tracks + duckbills is just a lot of work, unlike Asuka’s vinyl version. The figures are from Dragon’s NW Europe set.
