I like these, all very "of the time" so well done. I guess the originals were at re-enactment shows. I mentioned before that a friend locally has several genuine second world war vehicles. His Sherman is a film star, having appeared in the film Fury.

Growing old is inevitable; growing up, however, is optional.
And I have opted out as my intention is to die young as late as possible.

That tank was in the movie?  Wow?  I saw teh movie and thought it was a bit overdone.

Sherman Tanks were made in a mile-long factory, called Birdsboro Armorcast, built just for that purpose right here in my home town of Birdsboro.  It has now been torn down, but I was able to grab a few shot some years ago of the massive abandoned facility.
