I suggest you seek other references for your Jagdpanther camo. That particular vehicle was assembled post-war and painted fancifully.

I used to paint just about everything German in 'ambush camo' myself, until not so terribly long ago!  :oops:
Jagdpanthers tend to be more stripey than spotty, but I wouldn't completely rule it out.  :wink:
All the best

Meant to say somthing about this :oops: I'm by no means a Sherman expert....but i thought that could be a very early production M4A1, as these had the fixed foward firing machine guns originally.

Glad you think Blandford Forum is such a nice little town, I do too! The Sherman is the earliest surviving version and is called Michael after the British Tank Commission who travelled there to buy American tanks. I am off to Bovington again this week to see tanks in action.

Hi all,

In advance of the Model show held at the museum yesterday, I visited the museum on Friday. I thoroughly recommend a visit here. It was well layed out and full of information of everything tanky. Here are a few photos I took while I was there. More can be seen by clicking on the link.
