Sherman Fury

Thanks for your comments.

@Dukebormi, T23 turret is a personnal copy of the Dragon Model (Ref 7275).

@Jose Garcas, it"s why I dont found any good figures that I close the hatches !
Yours seem to be wonderfull. In your future models, please dont forget that sometimes crew are not in the tank, so some entire figures, outside tank are welcome.

To finish, my simply base. Some détails to correct and paint.
I'm waiting an accessory and a figure to complete and it will be completly done

Figure is ready now.

I tried to represent the driver of this famous tank, the Corporal Trini "Gordo" Garcia.
Representing a famous character is not the easiest thing on our scale.

Next photos will be the final photos of the Fury.

If only it was just that bad!
The Tiger gets smartened up early doors.
You've seen Zulu, right? Well, imagine the Yank tank is Bromhead's redoubt at the end and the SS Panzer Grenadiers charge it like the Zulus did in the film. That's after chucking away all the Panzerfausts they're carrying over their shoulders at the start of the action.
The tank's run over a mine and is disabled at a vital crossroads, a Battalion of SS men hove into view singing the Horst Wessel Lied. The battle's on!
Titt's character is the tank commander, called 'War Daddy', he wears cowboy boots and totes a six shooter in the tank. After getting shot 3 times by a high powered sniper's rifle, he proceeds to kill 300 Germans with his 50 cal., then drops back inside the tank and closes the lid. Inside cringes, the sole surviving crew member, the traditional hero worshiping out of his depth rookie. Titt's still got enough breath in him, to give the kid his version of the Gettysburg Address, before heroically breathing his last.
By this time I was laughing so loud they chucked me out of the cinema!

Fantastic! You have worked magic to achieve an end result with added impact. :thumbup: Well done.

Those that have seen the Elephant, would not ever wish to see it again. BB
