M4 Sherman 75mm VVSS

747th Tank Bn in support to 29th Infantry Division

Storming of Saint Lô

July 18, 1944

Maxtrax 250 parts kit heavily modified and upgraded with 1340 scratchbuilt parts.
Definitively not a Chinese toy!

Je remercie chaleureusement Mike McCaulay (Maxtrax), Eric Carpentier (canon en alu tourné) et Maurice Dès (moulage des chenilles). Leurs contributions dans ce projet ont été déterminantes. Sans leur aide et leur savoir faire, ce projet n'aurait jamais pu voir le jour.
My thanks go to Mike McCaulay (Maxtrax), Eric Carpentier (turned aluminium gun barrel) and Maurice Dès (moulding of the tracks). Their invaluable contribution to this project was essential. Without both their help and knowledge, this project couldn't have come true.
