Matchbox/Revell Sherman Firefly

It may be old but it is still a classic and a perfect match for my Airfix Shermans in my 1944/45 British RTR viz Command Decision orbat (see below):

That makes a total of four so I can up gun my formation with an extra Firefly troop as happened with teh Guards Armoured I believe.

It is gratifying that it still slips together like a dream despite its age :)

PS Matchbox had the tracks dilemma sorted back in the 1970's

A lovely old kit! Does it still come with that useful section of bridge?

Damn straight about the tracks mate.

Nice build.

Tim: Rest assured the ruined bridge is still included, that being the reason why most (big) kids have at least two Sherman Fireflys

Paul: The only reason I can think of is that Matchbox must have held a patent or the others were too proud to copy ;)
