Greg's Captured Sherman - 'One of Ours...'
Been searching through my stash for something to build for this GB, and I think I've come up with a senario. I found a Sherman, a Willy's jeep from Airfix's Buffallo amphtrac kit, and a set of US winter infantry, all in 1/72 (well, the jeep's in 1/76, but that should be okay). So here's the plan; it's set in Western Germany, January 1945. The Sherman is going to be the captured vehicle, dressed up in German markings. It's going to be approaching a US checkpoint, the occupants of which have been killed. The story is that it's just attacked the position under the cover of darkness, and while it was spotted by the US troops, they assumed it was friendly until it was too late, hence 'one of ours'.
The details aren't set in stone yet, but those are the basics.
Here's some sprue shots, wish me luck
