Here's the finished model on the base. A few grass turfs, static grass and carved weeds went onto the base and this was then sprayed with various earth and grass colours before finally going over the groundwork with some pigments.
The 4th armoured division badge really sets off the base as well.
It's been a very long time since I last built a Sherman so I have really enjoyed this project. From start to finish it's been trouble free and very relaxing. Tamiya have yet again produced a superb kit which has plenty of excellent detail but is very easy to build.
