Being a modeller for quite a few years now, I decided to explore the endless possibilities that the world (through internet) offers, and come up with a series of ways of building, modelling and painting fast (but not hastily), to create the worlds I was seeing in history books since I was little. . .If you care to join me. . . This is the place to be! And, I promise you to find the way (or ways)!!

Good day and good week everyone!!!

Last weekend I bought Italeri's fast-build Shermans M4 A3. Each sprue(tank) comes in grey colour and in twelve pieces, which are very detailed (at least for the purpose they are destined for).
This kit also has decals (hoorraaayyy), and a separate sheet of how to apply them, depending on the war theatre someone wants to use them for.
If you want numbers for your Tiger opponents....go fo it!! They catch fire very easily, so you'll probably need many!! :-)

I hope you like them!



  1. Of course I like them! Very well painted.

  2. Look very nice. Certainly very robust looking for gaming purposes without been too simplified.


  3. Super work Thanos. They look the part mate, and it is great to see some close ups to compare it to the HAT kits.

    Nice post.

  4. Are they suitable for Europe? They do look the part, but I'm not a big expert on Shermans... Also, what make are the figures in the pictures?

  5. Good work !!
    i hope to get this set soon !!!
    Are they better than Hät/Armourfast ones ??

    Laffe, this one is suitable for US. European theatre, the ones which aren't are the M4A2


  6. These really do look good painted up and weathered. I may have to try out some of their kits to expand my WWII forces and see how they compare with the ones from Armourfast.

  7. Nice Shermans but i would apply a much more Red/Brown Colour on the Tracks, followed by a simple black Wash and a smooth black drybrush on the Rubbers. lower and upper Hull are done very very nice!

  8. Great work Thanos, and they fit well with your houses :-)
