Yeah, I have found Taigen to be oversize in scale appearance on the turrets etc. At least compared to Nick's work. Hi stuff looks so good, I hate to use anything else really. But I am willing to try just about any kit or parts out there that are Shermans. This project has really gone off the deep end in scratch building requirements. Most of it will be. Its fun in one respect but doing all the research to get it right is the pain. I obsess unitll I have it just right, or I will remove it and redo the work and I rather not do that. There aren't tons of photos of M32B3 available to answer questions I had abut angles and things and such and finally a guy from Facebook Sherman group dropped a load on me. Really helped.

Wow more than a year I haven't touched this model. It was time to do something.... So I made the front fairlead roller contraption. A hand full of days worth of work. Used Ludwigs top part and roller but the rest of his parts were all wrong so I made some templates up and made brass parts and soldered it all up. Not a fun project, lots of burnt fingers and hurt ego when doing this kinda work.
