    I have quite a variety of 6mm,1/285 and 1/300 Shermans from different manufacturers.  Can anyone tell the differences between them (or perhaps knows the difference without seeing)?

    e.g.? (sorry they are all a bit battered – I am about to start renovating them!)

    More of them here.

    The one on the left looks like a Heroics and Ros Firefly. The two on the right look like Heroics as well

    The two huge tanks on the left are GHQ and Baccus (you can see how the Baccus stuff is actually around 1/250). No idea about the one which look like a Tiger, but the next two are H&R. The rightmost one on your blog photo is the HR Firefly, or at least, it looks like my old HR Fireflies, there maybe newer sculpts now.

    Absolutely nothing looks like my old Lancashire Shermans, lead blobs with pins for gun barrels.

    Thanks both.

    I’ll stick on the extra photos here to save people going to the blog:

     

    Martin – could the one on the right of photos 1,2 & 3 be Lancashire? It looks a bit cruder than the rest

    Lancashire? Or Leicester?

    All the best,

    John.
