thanks for the compliments during this build, it is motivating. I have started installing the pioneer tools and here are some more pics of the Sherman in progress. I added brass


tube for the track adjuster wrench and some brass PE sprue for the shovel, (thanks to the Shermanholic, ). I used the Panzer IV gun cleaning rods for the this



Sherman under the stowage rack. The turret is about done, i had to do some additional sanding and will re-apply the casting texture with Mr. Surfacer 500. That stuff works really well replicating the cast texture on the turret and on the tranny cover. I added weld details to the gun travel lock, i know it should be a little shorter than it is, but i think it looks pretty good as is. Hopefully, this weekend i will get the first coat of paint on it this weekend.
