1/35 Tasca M4A1 Sherman w/full interior

Hi All,

It's the first time I am posting here. Thanks for the help from panzerfaust, dsleigh and the administrator of vbench, so I can open my own vbench account.

I am planning to build a Sherman with full interior this year. The main componenets I planned to use are :

Tasca 35010 Sherman M4A1 (mid production)
CMK 35026 Sherman Driver set for Tamiya ( It fits to Tasca quite well. )
CMK 35027 Sherman Interior for DML (not yet started )
CMK 35025 Sherman engine ( Pre-ordering )
Armorscale 0.3 cal x 2
Armorscale 0.5 cal
Lionmarc 75mm barrel
Voyager P/E for Tasca 35010
Modelkasten SK-44 T49 track


Hope I can complete it in this year. Oh yes, I like interior a lot, and schedule to build one every year.

Louis

Firewall :

Basically, the CMK driver set kit fit well in Tasca Sherman. But I use back the Tasca firewall because it is critical to maintain a right angle of lower hull during assembly.






Radiator :

My CMK's radiator was distorted when I received it , and look a bit different than my reference. So, I re-build it by some PE and plastic sheet.

And now, the driving compartment is almost done. Some wires are still missing or unconnected now. After I painted them individually, I will add back the wires/pipes and connect them to the right device.

Fantastic job, definitely!
I wonder why you didn't want to use the Resicast engine, which is made just for the Tasca Sherman!
