Default Sandbagged Easy Eight

Hello, I am a Sherman-o-holic but the truth is this is the first 1/16 scale project I tried to achieve way back in 2005. Technical issues and some personal failures led to my going with a different up-armored easy eight that is still running after all these years. This time around I just sat down and started the process of making the sand bag racks and eventually the sand bags. Found the brass strip I needed and lots of super glue. I admit the project stalled at that point for two years while life got in the way. Now I have the parts and 6 boxes of milliput to get me through!

Surplus EASY EIGHT project acquired in a trade.


Styrene and brass oh my.


Foil on the trans cover as the bag need to seperate from lower for service
