Sherman Tanks

I re-discovered this site yesterday whilst looking for information on the 8th Armoured Brigade and it's three Sherman equipped regiments. It's a really useful site and very well worth a look if you're trying to find your way through the multivarious types of Sherman used by the British in North West Europe and elsewhere.


I now have enough HAT armoufast Sherman M4's, M4A2's and Fireflys to build two or three squadrons of tanks for the 4/7th Dragoon Guards, although they might not be entirely accurate. I'm going to do quite a lot of covering up with camo netting, stowage and other gubbins, so the rivet counters won't be too upset.

There are some excellent photos of  the sort of stowage I'm going to try to model here:
