Another JagdSherman conversion.  This time the subject is based on the rather old Tamiya M4A3E2 Sherman Jumbo kit.

Just saw that today. I may have to convert the Italeri M7 into something like that.
Every time you eat celery,an angel vomits in a gas station bathroom. Tanks rule. I know the load is late,but the voices tell me to pull over and clean the guns.

If I had to guess,I'd say the cupola is definatly British. There were some Shermans that used British cupolas.

For the Shermanphile amongst us, there is a web page called the Sherman Minutia Website that has some interesting topics on the intricacies of determining which variant of the M4 Sherman you are looking at or modeling.

The IDF were the coolest at converting SHermans!  IF I was a good scratchbuilder, I could build variants until I pass!

Found off World of Tank forum:

Top- "M4 IP", with more sloped armours.  Would look like it's trying to beat the Panther if it could take the 17 pounder......

Middle- M4 with Christie suspension.  :-*

Bottom- Another M3-based turreted tank; this time the idea came from the Americans themselves.

Forget about his bow and arrows- why wait until that sparrow has done his deed when I can just bury him right now 'cause I'm sick and tired of hearing why he wants to have his way with the cock robin!?

Roland A▀mann has put together a rather interesting kit bash involving an M4 cast hull and a few T-34 components that you can view at this link: What if... T 68 Sovsherman

Same images are posted at Missing-Lynx forums at this link: What if... T 68 Sovsherman

Yep, a very interesting combining of parts to come up with something that looks purposeful.
