1978 Monogram kit, yup the one that shoots and as a kid pissed me off as much as a boy could be pissed when it broke. Didn't last long anyway as I recall.

Any way building it without the plunger shooter, for the pleasure of my eyes. A bit of a side step while I wait for the infantry to backup the Sherman.

Small advancement tonight, glues the fuselage into the intakes. I want to let the glue set good before I do any more, this kit seems to require a little horsing here and there.

A lot of work goes into making that one look good.
On the bright side, no cockpit interior to deal with
 
Getting there...

When I was a kid, just slapped models together, kept 'em for a while, then onto a flight stuffed with Black Cats.......
 
You all had far-poppers AND models?????
