Very nice build! Excellent work. Very nice ground work and weathering on the model. Yes I too remember the days before Tasca and Formations. Back then most Dragon Sherman stuff were copies of Italleri and much of it still is unfortunately. I have done many a Sherman using filched kit parts here and there. Robbing from other kits just for a better detailed air cleaner. Ahhh... Takes me back it does. Thanks for posting!
