|Left track - an original Airfix rubber Sherman track. Right track - a mix of matchbox Firefly track, plastic strapping, and plastic card.|
|The Airfix track looks good!|
|The unholy mixture used to create the right track. Still, a coat of paint hides many sins.|
The replacement of missing turrethatches was to prove easier. I first roughly cut out a circle of about the right size and cut it in half. I then glued it down, and put a bit of card atop on hatch to act as vision block.
|Precision craftsmanship at its finest..|
|This one was only half as difficult...|
An additional tank has been added to to this batch - a Matchbox Comet. When I was looking for track for Shermans, I discovered a gun from a Comet, so i quickly knocked up a very basic mantlet out of plastic card, and glued it, and the gun into place.
|A very basic mantlet.|
|I haven't replaced the missing rollers.|
|Side by side with the first comet, which has been sprayed using FOW Late War British Armour.|
