Plastic Soldier Company M4A1 Sherman (Us Army in North Africa and Italy)

Well I'm finally doing it, posting the Shermans I've been rambling on about all this time. These very well might be my favorite models that I have ever built.


The decals were extras from the Italeri Fast-build M4A3's.


The extra stowage is a mix of scrath-built and kit-supplied goodies. (From various kits.)






I'm very happy with how they came out, and am very much looking forward to getting another box for my 8th Army.

Comments and criticisms welcome!

Thank you for reading, and coming up next is my Airfix/Italeri 88mm Tow.

Hat 10cm Feldhaubitze M.14 and Hat WWI Italian Artillery Crew (Italian Desert Artillery WW2)

I think the title is a little too long, but I got to include the names somewhere.

Finally got my Russians in the mail last Thursday. I have already painted around 30 Russians, and Built and painted all of my armor. All that I need to do now is wash and weather them.

Here are the Italian guns and crew I have finished from Hat. Still more guns to go, but the crews are pretty much done.




The wood stoked wheels need to be replaced, since they will not be horse drawn.



The pith helmets were made out of the WW1 Italian helmets provided in the set.



Along with my Italeri gun, that makes 4 medium Artillery and 1 Heavy artillery, all with their corresponding crew, plentiful enough for my Italian force.

Up next are my PSC Shermans, tanks I loved to build and had some fun customizing each one of them.

Comments and criticisms are welcome!
