In a previous post I had finished painting everything that I had for my WWII collection, but have since treated myself to a few models, including a tank for my allies. Having recently read James Holland’s Brothers in Arms, about the Nottingham Sherwood rangers tank regiment I was inspired to buy a Sherman Firefly for my allied forces.
I’ve always been rather fond of the Sherman Firefly ever since I had a 1/72 scale model of one when I was a kid and when I found a company called 3d Printing Valley who produce 1/56 scale tanks for as little as £15.00 plus postage I couldn’t resist!
The printing quality seems very good to me (though I am no expert in this field) and it has nice crisp details. The front glacis plate had some obvious print lines which I have cunningly hidden under heaps of stowage and the details on the tracks are somewhat simple, though it is nothing a healthy dose of mud wouldn’t fix! All in all they seem like very nice models and I have already ordered a couple more models to be getting on with.
