Very nicely done Jacob. If I can add one thing, there should be a second aerial fitted to the vehicle:




I also colour corrected and played with brightness and contrast on one pic to better show off your fine work:

It is indeed very nice. If mine turns out half as good I'll be more than pleased.

That's the "Sicily" version kit of the Sherman III, yes? IIRC that's the only British version they do with the welded drivers' hoods: Fisher built.

The squadron lineup photo shows the rear sand shields turned into stowage bins either side of the engine deck. I knew this was done in NWE but I didn't know it was done in Italy. Mounted further forward than in NWE too. I'll have to remember that detail

The upturned Skirts were started in the Tunisian Campaign going by phots andcarried over to the Italian one. When many of the experience units of the 8th Army came back to the Uk for D-Day they brought their habits with them. The Royal Scots greys and 3 CLY (Seen above in Sicily lined up) were in 4AB for D-Day and carried over the traditions they were using in the MTO
