Sherman & Pershing

The Super Pershing was given a huge new gun and plates of extra armor. It was so nose heavy they had to add external recuperaters.

They still maintained the bow machine gun.

A Paul Heiser Sherman is here next to the Pershing. You can see the Sherman is a tall tank and rather short in length.

The narrow Sherman is in sharp contrast to the main battle tank size Pershing.

The 90mm gun of the Pershing was huge and need the new large turret for recoil space and ammo storage.

THose POershings are pretty impressive.
I bet the Germans scattered when they showed up.

I'd still like to see more of the later WW2 vehicles like the M 24 Chaffee and the M 18 Hellcat.

Hard to find decent kits of those.
And some M3 or M5 Stuarts would be nice, especially with the hedgerow "cutters".
Other than Hasegawa kits, not much out there.

That's a very nice Sherman. How does it compare in size to the Airfix one?

All those are made in HO in resin, but hard to find and expensive.

The Paul Heiser vehicles are HO 1/87 scale and smaller than the Airfix 1/76th scale Sherman.
