That depends entirely on what kit he's going to be working with. For
example, if his diorama was of a destroyed (and flipped) Panzer IB,
and he was planning to use a commonly-available (and somewhat cheap)
Zvezda Pz.IB kit as the basis for the wreck, he would have to deal
with the fact that the bottom of that kit has the "Zvezda" logo
displayed rather prominently.
Even without such advertising issues, just because someone makes a
model of a kit doesn't automatically make it accurate. Many kits
(particularly older ones) have trouble keeping the UPPER parts of the
kit accurate; many just don't even bother making the effort for the
(normally unseen) hull bottom.
Hi there Craig.
Maybe this site will have some thing that can help you.
If you should decide to email the owner be sure to let him know what
variant of Sherman you intend to model.
Cheers from Peter
That should take a hand grenade, shouldn't it?
I'd love to see the end results of someone throwing a "sticky bomb" at
one of those; the turret would probably fall out of the sky in downtown
Well, yeah; I only picked the Zvezda Pz.I because I have those kits; I
would *guess* that other Zvezda (and Italeri?) kits have the logo on
the bottom too.
Of course, if you have a squad of Ethiopian warriors (and an Italian
tank), you don't even need a grenade. Since they were generally not
equipped with anti-tank weapons of any stripe, they would just pick up
the tanks and flip 'em by hand.
Now *that* would be an interesting diorama ....
