A festive Sherman tank decoration has been donated to the Museum’s Christmas tree.

Sherman Xmas Decoration

Tank enthusiast Arwel James (Instagram @modeling_tanks) made the bauble containing a Sherman tank with the markings of the 7th Armoured Division, better known as the ‘Desert Rats’.

The Sherman sits astride a snowy rock and is painted in a Christmassy red and green colour scheme, with a red and white barrel pattern representing a Christmas Candy Cane.

The model was inspired by a surplus of 1/100 scale model Shermans kits that Arwel had collected. He said “I hope the decoration will bring a fraction of the joy that the Museum has given me over countless visits.

“I hope it will provide a tank based centrepiece to the Museum’s Christmas tree for many years to come”.
