There is a lull in building the TA-152-C and I got a bad cold and a cut in my fingers from the bread slicing machine. So I use the oppertunity to post another Tank vignette I did in the past. As usual all started with a pic in Wheels Tracks. I don't know the exact place nor the date of the pic. It shows an early Sherman M-4 75 mm which got more than it needed. Again I don't know what happened to it so I decided it was hit in the right side by tankfire. By the clothes of the GI you see it must be cold. So an Europen battlefield is most likely. The kit: There is no burnt rubbertrack on the market as far as I know so I decided it wears steel tracks. Kitbashing again. The upper hull is MD the lower hull Tamiya and the turret is an old Nichimo part. The running gear is a mix of italeri, Tamiya and Nichimo - just what I found in my trash box. I once made some resin parts which doubled for the gear. A P-47 of my youth days delivered some engine parts. And last but not least many wires and thin metal sheet from mustard and ketchup tubes. Time for some color Ny fingers are aching so more when they calme down.
