Adapted from Tamiya:

    An Easy Ride! The U.S. M4 Sherman tank was undoubtedly one of the symbols of WWII, deployed in great quantities and numerous variants to counter the potential threat of German armor. One such variant was the M4A3E8, which was one of the final Sherman types and thus had the benefit of design improvements developed from experiences in battle. The improvements included a hardy welded late production hull, plus the welcome addition of the 76mm main gun. It was also fitted with new Horizontal Volute Spring Suspension (HVSS), and wider tracks, making for the significantly more comfortable ride that led to the M4A3E8's nickname of "Easy Eight." They were thrown into their maiden operation in the Battle of the Bulge in December 1944 as part of the 4th Armored Division under General Patton's overall command, contributing to the relief of the besieged town of Bastogne and the eventual triumph of the Allies in the European Theater.

    About the Model: This is a 1/48 scale plastic model assembly kit. When completed it's approximately 15.6cm long and 6.2cm wide. There is superb detail across the model, notably on the HVSS, engine grilles and rear deflector. T66 tracks are depicted in assembly form, with one-piece straight sections. Interior weights are included and give the model a realistically heavy feel. A commander torso figure comes with the kit and there are 2 European Theater marking options. Order today!
