Sherman Additions

Here are two stock Italeri Shermans built out of the box.  They will add numbers to my growing US forces.
Hope you enjoy!

    Ted, I know I’ve asked this before but those ‘W’ serial numbers have me baffled. Can you shed any light?

    Cheers, Dave

      Hey Dave,

      Just used the decals from the kit…

      Here’s an explanation of US markings in WWII

        Thanks for the link Ted. I really don’t recall ever seeing WWII US tank serial numbers other than 30- or USA 30- so that was complete news to me. Must look through some more of my books when I have time but I am certain Terence Wise (my usual favourite reference) doesn’t mention the W prefix at all. More research required! Thanks again…

        Cheers, Dave
