Funny you should mention Shermans

Response to Re: Emhar Mark IV Female - "...effectively useless"?

Hi Neil:

I hear you about Emhar being so unaccountably negligent. I suspect, however, people will build the kits because they contain the kind of visual cues one expects of the Mark IV. This is a truly weird phenomenon; what if people are buying these kits not because of their fidelity to scale but because they conform to the picture in the mind's eye of what a World War I rhomboid tank looks like? I know it's heresy but I'm just askin'.

It's funny you should mention Shermans because it seems to me that as a group Shermaholics seem to gravitate towards bolt counting like no other. I recently read a review in FineScale Modeler about DML's reworked Sherman Firefly. The reviewer was practically dancing in the street at the news that DML had shortened the hull four millimeters. Yesiree a whole four millimeters!
