Oh, I don't know.  It looks just fine to me.  But I'm easy to please...

Looks pretty much spot on to me. :-*

Ficou marcado na história

Só o Flamengo é campeão mundial
E agora seu povo

That's the one...



Just spotted that Rubicon do some resin stowage kits; inc one for a 222.

This one for a Sherman could have some useful bits to add to the Kangaroo.

Those stowage sets look great.

I just received another Sherman Plus a stowage pack. They have been molded so they key into the detail of the kit.
So long as you're happy with the placement they will fit flush eg the tarp and crate bundle on the rear of the Sherman has the shapes of all the tools etc impressed into the underside.
Perfect fit, no floating stowage...

I've ordered the sets for the US halftrack + the Sdkfz 222. Very much looking forward to putting them together with the kits.
It's a savvy step by Rubicon, these sets aren't cheap but then they're not running a charity. If I had a criticism I'd say they look a bit tarp-tastic, cos you know, bed rolls and tarps are easy to sculpt. Need some more camouflage nets, ration + ammo boxes, odd bits of looted kit.
but hey, they've got my money!

There's a cheap source of other stowage,  clearly not Rubicon quality but none the less useful here:

https://anyscalemodels.co.uk/collections/wargames-accessories-1-56-or-28mm.

Admittedly 1/48 but the Tamiya stowage kit is a very useful resource and won't break the bank. Has kit for both German and Allied vehicles.

Totally agree, lots of tarps. If Rubicon did a box of just the six pounder ammo containers that came with the Loyd Carrier I'd be snapping that up.

Thanks for the link. No seen that site before, which is a bit weird considering the amount of Google searches I've made for terrain and stowage.
That said there is a rubble pile on the 2nd page of '28mm WARGAMES ACCESSORIES' that looks very similar to something I found on eBay:

Second Sherman, with some of the resin stowage bits.






Added some to the Kangaroo, there was also a length of track that got added to the Firefly.

Love 'em, especially the Kangeroo. I've seen piccys of them going up the line, neat stowage, looking spic and span. The same vehicles coming back look like Steptoe's rag and bone cart. That's the look I went for on mine, but think I've overdone it!
