The Great Sherman Vote! (been comin' for a long time.)

Post by PizzaMovies on Sat Aug 15, 2009 12:40 am

With all the influx of WWII creations, Me and Phima thought a poll was a good idea, so I thought I'd set up a poll where ya can vote on which Sherman tank best fits the reference pictures I've provided below, and which one you like best. It would be best for you to judge them in: 1) Historical accuracy. 2) Details, such as greebling and just how good it looks. 3) Proportions, such as length, width, turret size, slope, etc...

Below is what they are suppose to look like.




THIS IS WHAT IT'S NOT SUPPOSE TO LOOK LIKE: Razz


First up...is mine. Razz



Now, we have Funky Cow's (funky funkeh)



Last but...not least, we have PhiMa's!



So, just cast your vote people, and let us know what ya think! It's not that hard to press a button, you can do it! Wink

Wait, I thought we vote on which one we like best, not which one is most accurate.

Funky Cow for the win.

Though this topic is completely pointless, debating about who's tank is the best? Laughing

When I was making my tank I didn't use that photo as a reference pic so I think this Poll is a little unfair.

Sorry, I can't see too well (allergies are hell), and I thought it said something else, so I clicked "yes"...\


And, hell no, I suck at making jeeps, how about a faction vote?

Mine were too small, and it was all I had, and theirs are too wide. For a sherman, you're suppose to use two rows of small tread links, but those big ones are too wide and are suitable for a tiger, not a sherman.

EDIT: @CT44: Ok, gonna post my faction now just to show you up, you little snot, mine consists of 35-40 figures of 3 different sides...punk.

Actually, I stole from neither of those. I used the instructions for this. And then modified it. Plus, I gave everyone credit, and shared the design.

I went with Funky's. The shape is the most accurate, especially the turret-to-chassis height ratio, which PM's utterly failed at, and the barrel circumference, which PhiMa's utterly failed at. Smile

Maybe I should've provided a picture where the turret wasn't turning...

Your treads are brown though so I think that ours are more accurate.

That's not my point. I mean that in both reference pics, the turret has less total height than the distance from the baseplate of the chassis to the top of the chassis armor on which the turret rests. Your turret contains more total height than the chassis measurement I mentioned.
