That is a beaut, especially with the three piece tranny cover. You don't see that often. I am hoping once you guys across the pond start receiving the Mato Shermans you work some magic on them and we see a bunch of British variants.

Those two Firefly's are fantastic. Well done to you both.
I'm still trying to get a Mato Sherman so I can copy the great work seen on this post.

All the best Gents,

Nick.
