Lightbulb ODDBALL's Sherman from "Kelly's Heroes"

Just thought I'd add a little life to this section. It's missing a few details but I'mma workin' on them as we speak.

It is 1/16 using stock MATO suspension and tracks, Tamiya lower and upper hull plus the high bustle turret, Elite Armor 76MM aluminum barrel and Nicks M34A1 mantlet.

It IS equipped with a Tamiya electronics... the M26 Pershing sounds (but no recoil just like the shows tank didn't have) and the IMPACT battle system installed.

Here's the build: http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_96...tm.htm#9603584

Here's a video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=isU_GiH4qFA

And a couple of pics.

The Sherman looks great chap.

A guy used to make the oddball figure but I haven't been able to fine one for a project I did (Heng Long hull and cut up Tamiya Lunchbox shell)

Do you know who did the bust and whether still doing them? And Jimmy Flintstone that's the one I was thinking of

Thumbs up Re: ODDBALL's Sherman from "Kelly's Heroes"

I believe it was Frank (fynsdad) at http://www.rctankregiment.com/rctankforum/index.php that sent me the bust.

I would try him first.

Talking Re: ODDBALL's Sherman from "Kelly's Heroes"

Oh well thanks Lynn!

There are still some things to add and change... you know, sometimes they are never finished right at first.


Hope all is well with you! I miss battling with you guys.
