Soviet Sherman M4A2 76, Torgau, Germany, May 1945
converted & painted
Here's another model I managed to finish this year and yet another Sherman tank. The model was based on wartime example photographed at the very end of the war at Torgau. It's accurately built according to 4 existing known to me photos but as usual I let myself for my own invention in terms to weathering here and there and details of the sides not visible on the photos. The crew and part of the stowage were scratchbuilt. The vehicle has a slogan written on its side that says "The Russians always beat the Prussians", this is a quote after Marshal Suvorov who replied like that to the Tzar when the latter insisted to implement Prussian military drill in Russian army back then in Napoleonic era.
