Extreme Makeover


Fury refit 4B

Just before Christmas I received a package from Domi over at RetroKit  it contained a couple of new conversion kits for the world war toon Sherman models.  A little later than planned here is the Sherman M4A3 hull which i used to convert “Fury”.   The movie version didn’t have the cast rounded hull, so thought i might make it a little more accurate……..fingers crossed for some HVSS suspension units to finish off the job;)

Now for a tiny review of the conversion kit.

Have to say the casting and detail is very crisp, no air bubbles present. Very accurate fit to the hull of the wwt tank. You will need to spend a little time removing the component parts from the resin sprue, which in this case is the old school kind of block, i used a hack saw and a file to do this, the resin is not hard and brittle like some, so it was not too difficult to do this.  I then added all the detail parts for the hull from a WWT Sherman kit using super glue. i then primed the resin before painting.  I have to say I’m very pleased with the result……….there are now even more conversion kits for the WWT range, so head over there and check them out.

    They are, strangely i was never really one for cartoon stuff…but i find lately its taken me over……which is not a bad thing, its great to game with these models, its refreshing and not po faced or obsessive…..you know how ww2 gets? We’ve also had no tears despite the massive carnage on the battlefield!…we had a lot of that with the daleks and especially spitfires being shot down, but thats understandable isn’t it?
