I have a set of Star decals for my Rye field Firefly and was intended to also use the other decal option for the British Sherman III,what kit can you recommend so I can also build the Sherman Cassius?


Thanks

I think https://www.scalemates.com/kits/tasca-35-017-sherman-iii--122600 would be a good fit.

Unfortunately not so - that kit represents a much earlier production Sherman III with direct vision slots which is unsuitable for 'Cassius'.

They have a mid production variant as well, try that.

That's the one I meant to post. Was doing the links with my phone.

So I will need this kit then?but it has the wrong tracks which is not as bad as I thought.


Thanks all now to see if I can get it closer to home as looks like Japan is the only place.

Karl,
I've got a set of the Asuka stamped spoked road wheels. PM me your postal address and I'll send them to you free.

Matthew that's a very kind and generous offer but until I can purchase the kit can you hold off and see if I can shop around as I don't fancy ordering for the far east at the moment as I know there are long delays.
Again your kindness is overwhelming
Cheers

Matthew I have just looked and that kit supplies the stamped road wheels.
