Default Yet more Shermans...

Got a couple more projects to be getting on with....


..first one will be based on "Old Phyllis" from Fury. She's got a small hatched hull so surgery is in order...

Ha ha... looks like my shop. Except mine is full of halted projects severely needing the spark to re-light the interest.

Don't know what happened, just lost the drive.

Hey Jeff

I know what you mean. I have lost my drive to build anything anymore. My shelves are full. Think I might have to unload half of them and start again!!!

Frank

Like I mentioned in another thread, more Shermans than the Detroit tank arsenal. It will be nice to see you progress on these two,

Martin.

You have a pile of hulls of my second favorite tank. What is your plan with those?.

My plan will be a separate build thread that doesn't further hijack Frank's

Seriously, you must be working poor Fyn to death! If this keeps up we may have to report you for violating the child labor laws!

Great work, Frank, as always. I love the way you've found a very special niche in this fantastic hobby, providing a custom tank that's had all the detail work done, that your customers can add electronics of their choice to was a real stroke of genius. Do you have plans to do anything besides Shermans? I'm wondering what all that talent could do with another tank that's readily available at a relatively low cost, the King Tiger. Not nearly as many variants as the Sherman, but I still think you could do some really interesting things with the HL KT.

Thread drift doesn't bother me. To me it makes it more sociable!!!! A bunch of guys just sitting down and BSing around and about Franks tanks.

Yes... and no offense but I believe someone like yourself can expose themselves to a burn-out condition with the amount of tanks you built, sold and serviced!

My problem is as I described to you in an earlier PM as I am STILL excising those demons and situations thrust upon me from my surgery back in October of last year. The physical pain alone is debilitating...

BUT!!! New hope on the horizon with that Puma and T-72 N Jagdtiger both from Trumpeter has my interest peaked higher than ever!


Also... I too fell prey to the Sherman tank love affair and have many started, planned and invested in so I myself am facing some sell down of some kits too.
