Megalomania - the Tank Park

So I have been building up the tank park, the latest additions; an Esci Sherman. What a pain. I complained about the Airfix rubber band tracks, but Esci have taken another tack. Each track is made up of 4 decent sized parts plus 8 single links. and they all have to be cut out and trimmed from the sprue (obviously). Glueing single track links is definitely not my favourite thing to do. 2 days hard labour later...   Apart from that, a lovely kit..  so here it is, ready for the main colours.

Not sure about the somewhat stiff tank commander...  or whether this one might eventually get fitted with loudspeakers and a barrel extension..   just for that .. edge.. ya know, man?

And here's the rest of the tank park. In the front is an Armourfast Tank Destroyer, just awaiting a crew. This one was pre-assembled and has just had a bit of a repaint. Decals are incorrect unfortunately, so I will have to attack this one again.
