After removing it, the result is a basic template of the shape needed for the underside of the bow plate.

Looks demanding, but I am sure you will overcome all the difficulties... Keep calm and carry on, Jakko! I will follow with pleasure and interest (as I have a Weasel in 72nd scale waiting for its time 😉

Thanks. This is not a kit I would recommend to anyone, really … It says it's for advanced modellers, and that's not an understatement, but even then I find it awful to build — despite (or perhaps because of) it looking like a good kit before I began.

It's very detailed, but casting quality is not great, fit has suffered as a result of that, the instructions just plain suck and the design seems to have favoured detail very much over ease of construction. But the thing is that that same detail isn't as good as it appears to be: having had a good look at a restored M29C, it's clear that all kinds of details are missing, even though they're of the same sort of size as detail that IS there, for example, and others are wrong.

Wow, what an intricate detailing - I admire your patience and determination here, Jakko!
24. October, 20:03

Thanks, it was certainly trying … perseverance got me through eventually, though 🙂

Nicely done, painted and realistic weathered. Your Sherman has seen some service!
26. October, 12:24
Jakko ‌
Thanks 🙂 Not sure about long service: it had stood outside for two and a half years at the point this model represents 🙂

Exellent detailing.
18. July, 18:46

Thanks, though it always looks better in my mind before I build it, than it ends up as in the flesh 🙂

Ver well done indeed 👍
26. August, 01:48

Thanks, though I wouldn't consider it great — I just mess about a bit until it looks OK 🙂

Hello Jakko, great build. As I see you like critics, I would just recomend to tone down the high lights of the fabric of the main canon and the machine gun next to the driver. Nice Build! Congrats!

I think they look a bit starker in photos than they do in the flesh 🙂

This looks great, Jakko.
Also love that kitty. 👍
10. August, 18:33
Jakko ‌
Thanks, guys 🙂 I thought the cat makes a nice change from putting a civilian figure onto models of derelict vehicles to indicate they're not in military service anymore. Oh, and the one I used as a painting guide just walked past my legs as I'm typing this 🙂

The tank still needs to have the actual name applied, by the way. I had no good way to do that when I built the model, but Black Lion Decals has since released a set that includes it. All I need to do is apply it someday 🙂

Robert Podkoński
Looks really good, congrats! I like this threatening look of Churchill tank...
12. July, 20:31
Jakko ‌
It's the little girl that gives it that look, isn't it? 🙂
13. July, 09:01
Robert Podkoński
Indeed, smiling little girl standing on a tank always looks creepy... 😄
13. July, 10:11
Jakko ‌
You'll probably find another of my upcoming models even more disconcerting, then — it'll have a cat on the tank 🙂
13. July, 20:55
Mark K
Very nicely done!
13. July, 22:07
Robert Podkoński
Cattus domesticus or some less aggresive species - Panthera tigris althaica, for example?...;)
14. July, 05:53
Jakko ‌
Felis catus, I think you mean 🙂 But yes, that variety. Now to go and finish that model …
14. July, 10:23
Robert Podkoński
Sure, Jakko - the most dangerous species of predator in the world...waiting with awe 😄

Fascinating subject and excellent scratch-building!

Guessing what tank it is was kind of fun, though my knowledge about tanks barely qualifies as superficial.
22. July, 15:08
Jakko ‌
Thanks, all 🙂

@Dave Flitton: I wonder what they made the additional stuff out of. Plywood would be easiest, I would think, but then why add all those rivets? Maybe to blend it in with the real part of the tank, I suppose. Though I have this feeling the whole thing was made of sheet steel. (Which also wouldn't need the rivets, or at least not ones this big …)

@Michael Osadciw: yes, it's definitely one of those typical wartime training videos that really have this very American/Hollywood tone to them. There used to be comments under this video on YouTube, but they were disabled sometime after I started this model; anyway, many of those said pretty much the same you did 🙂 (Oh, and did you know Ronald Reagan used to make films in this genre during the war?)
22. July, 17:25
Rui S
Very well done. Great finish. Had to see the vídeo 👍
25. July, 16:10
Jakko ‌
Thanks. I don't think I'd have believed this tank existed either without some proof to back it up 🙂

Note that Panzer Art got the designation wrong: this is actually a C235 ammo box, not a B235.
