Thinking about doing a lean too on either a Sherman or Jeep ( 1:35), and was looking for any thought about doing it. Presuming its going to be scratch built lean too. Any links or idea's that would be worth while knowing about.

Many thanks, Happy modelling.

Lean too, Canvas roof, open tent. Dunno if theres another name for it.

Not sure if you've had a response to this posted elsewhere but anyway...

..I've heard of guys using tissue paper, and soaking it in a water/glue mixture, then forming it or draping it where you want it, waiting until its close to dry and shaping it a little more. Just an idea

Another good source for photos is Kelly's Heroes. Oddball and his crew have a few of them set up in the beginning. Also a good source for vehicles as they actually had Shermans, Tigers, and T-19 halftracks.
