It is a work in progress. I am using the lower hull of a Forces of Valor early M4A3 tank. This model is terrible and useless. The early M4A3 was only used in training in the states. The detail is poor, it is really a toy....but the running gear is okay.

Looking pretty good .

Is that my T-23 turret you are using ?

Looks like you are doing the mid production M4A1 which would probably be correct with the T-23 turret.

I have done the early model M4A1 a few years back.

Here it is ( T-23 turret ) painted to match the BBI M4A3

pickelhaube, I got the turret years ago, I think it was yours. Nice paint job, it is so hard to
match existing paint. I do the lower hull piece of the turret bustle for the 21st Century M4. I tried to match , I came close but not perfect.

I think you are doing a great job as well. I can't wait to see it finished up!

Looks like I need to save up and buy several Sherman tanks to do all of the various conversions that I have seen here on this board!

It looks like you have made copies of my T-23 turret and are selling them on ebay .

If so that is not cool.
