For all us gamers complaining about a lack of easy-build transport, here's a solution! Just drill out the turret ring on a couple of Shermans and you've got yourself some Kangaroos. The British were very fond of turretless tanks as APCs in late WW2, and the Sherman was used extensively along with the Priest, the Canadian Ram, and even some Stuarts, Centaurs, and Churchills, I understand. It's a conversion as easy to do in model form as in real life - just add some stowage and kit bags to add a bit of interest, and you're done. No interiors to be made - in real life infantry just sat in the bare steel hull, with no seats provided unless the soldiers found some planks or boxes to throw in there.
Hope you like!
Many thanks to Mr. Vearncombe.
