Here is my entry. It's obviously still in the works. In France and Belgium grateful civilians painted messages all over allied tanks to celebrate their liberation. I added the name Beebe to honor our fallen commrade. It sounded like it could be french so I included it. Hope you like it

I really like what you have done with it so far. Can't wait to see what else you do with the scenery. And the tribute to Garry was really a nice touch as well..Keep us posted..

This would be one of the three Shermans on deck ready to become number 24. I doubt I will get the base done in time for the end of the campaign. If I do it will just be a simple base with some road and grass and that's all. There will be a driver and tank commander. I would like to add some dried flowers to simulate bouquets the civilians tossed onto the tank. Since the beginning of the campaign I tried to find a suitable female civilian passenger but couldn't find one I liked.

Nice work Alan, now you just need 10 - 15 civilians sitting all over the tank :-)

Here is a little more progress with some flowers tossed on by civilians. Seems like there were more floers in person. Guess I'm going to have to paint up a lot more flowers
