While strolling through the WWW, I discovered this cool freebie for owners of Tamiya's Shermans. Anyone who owns one from them will appreciate this template for fixing the sponson's hole. It's from Archer Fine Transfer's site. Norm Samuelson's Sherman Template

NOTE: It's in .pdf format so be sure you have this file on your PC first: Adobe Acrobat Reader
You can get the free download from the link I provided above.
Enjoy ya'll.

I thought maybe I was late to the party and everyone already has this solution to the missing sponson thing with Tamiya kits. Hmmm...

I'm glad at least one person here could use it.

Now if someone would only be thoughtful enough to post templates to fix all sponsons. Wouldn't that be nice.
