Welcome Biashpere1,

 

That Sherman is massive - how are you going for parts for it - or are you printing your own?

Awesome  timing , I just checked my intro as you posted . Yea I've printed off quite a bit of my parts , mostly the STL's from Ryan at Spyker workshops and some other sourced STL's I've upscaled from 1/10 to 1/6 . She's going to be a M4A3E4(76) as all I've got to do is add a little barrel length to make her a 76 mm gun (from STL's) .

 She is big I actually pulled a hamstring putting her up there as I didn't take out the lead acid batteries and as I stretched out to put her in the tray it went pop lol.

This is an M4A3E4 picture in Japan after they re-upped the M4A3's to get the 76's into service .Fisher (75's)and Chrysler(105's) M4A3 bodies with the D87461 turrets with the M34A1 mount was the format .

A line drawing as well .

My reason for doing a Sherman as most everyone has already done the box tank mark 1 (Tiger 1) or some other bug kitty cat .

I want to do a 1/6 M26 Pershing next .

Hi mate - welcome to the forum.

M4 looks interesting. What electrics are you using?

I'm driving the tank thru a Sabertooth 2X12A as the tank is not very heavy for a big tank . I'm a Clark TK24S for sounds and other functions , she'll have engine smoke, cannon smoke and flash , the MG's will strobe too , recoil a whole bunch of stuff.

I've got to send my radio back to HobbyKing as they sent me a dud TGY-i6S .

Cheers mate .
