"Emcha" - Soviet Sherman M4A2 76, Germany 1945

I was wanting to take a break from the tedious job of upgrading the calliope launcher so I took on another Sherman instead. This time it's a Soviet (who could expect that? :) ) vehicle operating within one of the Guards Corps in Germany during the spirng of 1945. The base kit is DML with some upgrades from tasca, 3d printed periscope guards and rear light guards, some PE parts and scratchbuilding. Bicycles come from two different manufacturers, the smaller one is resin Royal Model kit and the bigger injected plastic one is from Diopark, both excellent with excellent details and PE parts. The most time consuming part of this build were the T49 Modelkasten tracks, but the effect was worth the effort. Hope you like it. Although I won't paint it very soon I'm happy another Sherman is completed and joins the ranks on the shelf instead of lying in the box...
