Default Kelly's Heroes

A few years ago our children gave me a Christmas present, a model representation of the main tank in the movie Kelly's Heroes. It is probably about a 1/72 scale.
The figure in the turret is Sergeant Oddball, Donald Sutherland.
For the scale, it does a good job of depicting this iconic tank and figure.

Nice job on the Sherman and Oddball. Donald Sutherland was a part time announcer at our local radio station, CKBW in Bridgewater, Nova Scotia. That was back in the 50's when he was getting ready to leave high school to study drama in Toronto.

Bern

A great representation from a classic film! Any idea who built this model?

Cheers,

I built the model but who manufactured it I do not know.
It was a simple model with few pieces; the body with running gear was cast as one piece as was the turret.

Nice work Tim!
They are 1/56 kits by warlord games, there are a couple of other Kelly’s Heroes kits.
