Default Sherman Tank busted in France

Hi Chums,
Driving back to England from France I noticed this Sherman in a sorry state next to the ferry port at Roscoff. I have tried to add some smoke and give a a bit of a at the time of the incident type of feel. Not sure if the smoke has really worked well enough though, I used a brush and painted it on. This was my best attempt, on the others it looked real fake. It might still do, let me know if you feel so inclined.
Cheers Chums.
Mark

Ya its like the cars in New York City. You leave them alone for 10 minutes and they strip the tires. I wonder who the hell needed a nice set of used tracks?

Cheers Ordo,
I just assumed the track was blown off there in the war and they left it where it stopped. Ill have to have a dig and see if I can find some more info on it. On the opposite side of the road is an old London double decker bus.
I reckon my smoke in pic 2 is not working as no ones mentioned it ha ha ha ha ha. I can take it guy.
Ill be back about that tank if I can find out some more.
Mark

M4A1 (76)W Sherman Tank On display in front of the Musée Militaire 39-45 in Roscoff, Brittany. It is missing
its tracks and suspension. (Trevor Larkum). It was bought in Dinan, about 100km
away (T. Royall).

I do like the smoke effect. It sets a mood more in keeping with the subject. Good idea.

With my tool kit, some baling wire, and a few odds and ends from a Peugeot, I think I could have that running in a couple days.
