Work In Progress / Re: Codename: Sherman 2016 - M4A2 Sprue Layout 171114

Yeah, considering that the US only took delivery of six M4A2 76(w), it did seem strange to have US crew. That said, they would needed to have created a brand new spruce for the Russians and I understand the costs and stuff.

The Russian Tank Crew blister will soon be available, so there will be no shortage of Soviet tank crews in the very near future!  A recap if you have seen them yet...





Enjoy!
;)

Rubicon are also working on stand alone crew figure kits  , German and Russians if IRC . I seem to recall the Germans have 4 upper torsos with I think about 8 heads and a whole bunch of arms . Something like 60 variations of ways to  build them . As your fairly new here , do you self a favor and read all the Work In Progress threads , Rubicon have lots of ideas for vehicle and figure kits , some they follow through on , others get back burnered for another time . The Digital Sculpts thread ( about 6 threads down in WIP ) shows some figure sets Rubicon is thinking about or actually working on

Jimmy , the small sprue  in the bottom right hand corner  ( above the copyright ) is the figure sprue . IRC ,  Rubicon posted a picture of it full size showing the figures ( both 3 Yanks & 3 Brits ) on one of the ( many )  Sherman  threads . Someones bound to remember what thread and when posted  , I don't  I'm afraid  :-[   Sprue shown in Assembly Instructions Sherman M4A2 / Sherman III & M4A2 76mm tank . I found it ! ;D

Ah okay, thanks!

Yank crews and no Russians is a bit of a shame for the A2 though. I assume it's the same sprue with the other Shermans?

Why does it say "amphibian"?  Is there an amphibious version planned?

It was the US War Department designation for the trailer, not of our making!  ;)

And why not go for the Ben Hur trailer as well?

Excellent.

Useful for other things as well (that Twilight 2000 still for instance).

Wish Lists / Re: SUGGESTIONS - The Next Allied Stowage Set
« Last post by ultravanillasmurf on November 15, 2017, 04:02:19 PM »
Personally I would prefer crew and stowage to be separate (the PSC set is the reason writ large).

Crew sets make more sense as individual blisters otherwise you would end up with a lot of unused figures.
