I know, right? The German stuff is hackneyed and way overdone. Nothing but boredom there. Why doesn't someone do a Churchill?

The first TANKLAND video is fantastic (haven't seen the later ones)--you say primitive but it looks fine and most of it looks scale. Well-defined roadbeds with fine powdered dirt which leaves the...

Believe me, I am grateful for more choices in armor but for a while there it was nothing but Tigers and a few Shermans/Pershings. Now at least we have Russian armor and maybe a few Lend-Lease...

I'll second what Fury25 said, unless there's a better, detailed thread already showing the process (no reason to rehash). If one wants a cast-hull Sherman, this is about the only game in town...

I've seen several movies with Shermans in them; Tank (1984) and Kelly's Heroes (1970?) first come to mind. Maybe those are to blame for provoking an interest and love for the Sherman? There was a...

I highly suspected this, since I could not see the rest of the boat--but as far as I could tell the 'business end' is very similar for each type. In fact a Higgins boat is much welcome in this...

Great fun! If any tank (HL or 1/1) was worthy of being called a hot rod, it would be the M-41. Any other tank at these speeds would look preposterous.

Does losing the gun sound with the elimination of the "jerk-back function" (it's not recoil) apply to all Heng Long tanks?
