Many of us forget that the Sherman tank continued to soldier on long after it was retired in the west, well Klaus Eberl reminds us of this with his offering of an M50 Sherman with 60mm HVMS Chilean Army. Something I like to see in this offering is that it is an old Dragon Model offering that has been used, reinforcing that old does not mean obsolete. This Dragon Model has been dressed via the use of resin, photo etched parts and an aluminium barrel conversion made by Greg Buechler Enterprises, some scratch work and turned metal antennas have also been used in the model. The painting and weathering has been performed using K4 and Ammo of Mig products. The stowage is parts from Meng Model and Tamiya bits, plus home made improvements. The M50 Sherman with 60mm HVMS in Chilean Army service was achieved using Bison Decals.
