M4a3 sherman - gpm - 1:25

Hello

My next major project should take some time again, so be patient.

I've had the Sherman tank from GPM in my sights for a long time, now it's lying on the cutting mat and wriggling

The beautiful model kit contains approx. 1800 parts on 15 A4 pages, many of which are kept very small

With sixteen building sketches and building instructions in Polish, English and German, the kit is very well equipped.

My anticipation is great to get involved in the adventure,

The friendly greetings from Styria send you
Kurt

Good choice Kurt. It will be fun to follow this as your building moves along.
As you may already know, there are several other threads here on the Forum to look at if you run into any problems along the way. Good luck!

M4A4 Sherman GPM

I must salute you for wanting to build it I also blazed at first
And the enthusiasm started in July 2011 and since then I build it every once in a while
There's Igor's Sherman Sherman Firefly From Halinski
at first I wanted to build the model with the Firefly cannon
Good luck
Abraham

Hi Guys ,
thanks for the start comments

Today there is the cut ...

First, glue frames K1 to K8 on 1 mm cardboard ... and put them together as a trial

I start by gluing the three longitudinal ribs with the middle transverse rib ... this is how the frame for the tub is built

Sincerely
Kurt

Attach the side frame K9 ... and close the side with K11

Install parts K13 + K14 ... at the front

K15 + K16 ... cover the front

Sincerely
Kurt
