I modeled the new Tamiya Sherman Easy Eight after the one in the movie Fury. For my inspiration I used the scene right after the Tiger scene where it’s going down a little road. Then it kills the Tiger.
Some extra parts that I added were a 30 cal next to the commander’s hatch, extra jerry cans, and a lead from a mechanical pencil for the antenna.
I also left off the frontal armor as though the Sherman was grazed by a Tiger round.
Tamiya Nato Green, Olive Drab, and Silver were the paints I used.
Weathering on the track and wheels was done with Plaster of Paris mixed with sand from the backyard and tinted with brown acrylic paint. I also put real oil on the intake grills.
