& Wading Shermans
WWII British Shermans Pt.3
1/35th Decal Sheet BD-35014
Review by Peter Brown
Printed by Microscale, the individual decal items come on their own small
section of backing sheet with a glossy finish. A few small items come on separate
small sections of decal sheet which will need to be cut out before use. Instructions
are in the form of line drawings of the vehicles giving details of colours
and a list of sources used in the design of the decals, a layout of the decals
sheet with code numbers to identify the items for each subject.
Swimming & Wading Shermans covers three wading tanks and two Duplex
- Option A is 13th/18th Hussars C Squadron wading tank CHARMER turret
- Option B is 13th/18th Hussars HQ BALACLAVA number 10 pictured
inland with the vertical section of the wading trunking removed.
- Option C is 13th/18th Hussars DD tank BORGIA turret number 48
All have the 27th Armoured Brigade "seahorse" marking, and note
that only A and B Squadrons were DD equipped on D Day with HQ and C Squadron
using conventional Sherman III and Vc prepared for deep wading.
D is a DD from Staffordshire Yeomanry used in the 1945 Rhine crossings.
- Option E is a wading tank from 3rd County of London Yeomanry in
4th Armoured Brigade. This is listed as a Sherman I Hybrid but I think
should be a II.
For these decals you will need to convert a suitable Dragon kit to a
DD or use Resicast kit 35.121, for the wading tanks you will have to
mix and match kit and aftermarket items such as Formations or Legend M4A2 and the Dragon M4A1.
