Thanks to Doug Chaltry's 172shermans.com, I've become addicted to Shermans. I'm looking to build a few specific vehicles that aren't offered by Dragon or Trumpeter, and I'm hunting for some particular parts so I don't have to buy kits just to cannibalize them. In particular, I'm looking for:
1. Plain dish roadwheels. These are included as an option in the Trumpeter M4A3 and M4A3 76W, as far as I know. The Dragon parts from the M4A2 Beutepanzer would also be OK.
2. Spoked Idlers. I believe these are included as an option in all the Trumpeter M4 kits.
3. T54E1 tracks. I'm looking for the DS versions, rather than Trumpeter's vinyl ones. These are included in the Dragon Sherman III, M4A2 Tarawa and Firefly Ic kits. I have T48 rubber chevron tracks to trade if anyone wants to swap.
If anyone has any of these bits lying around unloved and unwanted, please let me know, and I'd be happy to give them a good home.
I will have the first two & likely the 3rd
post your address here or email me at my home email on ...
(the main email I use here is a work one I wont see till Monday)
I have lost my room to one of my boys
so I have had all my modelling stuff packed away
I have chores to do now (on a Coffee break!) & out tonight, but
will be able to get everything together on Sunday
& can post off on Monday on my first break.
What Sherman plans do you have?
as there might be other spares I can add.
I have resin solid wheels & maybe trumpeter ones to
which would you prefer?
I cannot find any of those other things in any of the kits you specify - sorry.
I also have a set of Dragon tracks that look just like the T54E1 tracks, but have a raised "dot" right under the tread pattern. Are those better?
