Wow!  That is the lost impressive thing I've seen on these forums in ages.  I hope that you get paid by lego.  Amazing work.

You have a very impressive blog, sir.  Not only is there a Sherman but also many other tanks!  A+ level quality and detail.  If someone didn't tell me it was a fan-made tank I would believe it is an actual lego set and would start looking for it!

Unfortunately lego won't make sets with guns. :(

They made

- USS Constellation

- Sopwith Camel

- Fokker Tri-Plane

 

But that's it for "Real world weapons"... if you want weapons... there's star wars?... its a shame really, I mean I see Lego's point in that its a children's toy, and war toys aren't for children.. and I guess Star Wars qualifies as fantasy instead, so that's ok... BUT STILL they are losing out on a big market, a market the Brickmania took over, but those kits are over priced af...

 

Honestly, if you want "Lego" War Toys, you're better off with Cobi Small Army I've got a few of their sets and I can vouch 100% that as far as brick quality is concerned, Cobi blocks are just as good, much better than those second rate Mega Bloks that we see in the Lego isle in walmart or where ever... A lot of the time the only difference is they say Cobi where the Lego bricks would say Lego... but heres the kicker, a Brickmania M24 Chaffee, thats 100% Lego... $215... or more... Cobi M24 Chaffee (That is BIGGER)... $30... whats the better deal?...

 

I'm personally eyeing the Tiger 131 Kit from Cobi that they made in conjunction with the Tank Museum at Bovington... its like $35 on Amazon...

I had some issues with the Mocpages uploader, and it's rather difficult to create several long, detailed posts on different sites, so I decided to make a blog to have a single location for my models.
