"Multiple copies built-- still like"
vtbmwbiker
Geezum! I built versions of this way back in the 80's and am still finding bits and pieces of them in my scrap bucket. A great rendition of the first 76mm Shermans sent to Europe. 200 of them were in depots waiting to be issued but the troops didn't have the time to train with the new rides until after crossing the Channel. Fit works well. Decent amount of parts and a very detailed suspension, very articulated. However, I found I had to glue the front and rear rocker arms on the VVSS to keep the track from tensioning them out of shape. The track from the front bogie wheel to the rear bogie should be flat. Other hint--- the rear idler wheel sprocket pin is a separate part that glues onto the rear. Let this dry completely before putting the track on otherwise the track tension will pull it out of alignment.

"It's not Tamiya but it will do!"
John (Newfoundland, Canada)
I was super excited to finally start building up my Allied tanks and vehicles. First inspection seemed fine and the build went OK, there were some parts that didn't quit line up properly or showing a hole in the instructions but no such hole on the model. I did enjoy the suspension though and it's looks awesome as it moves over bumps and terrain. This kit comes with the 1 piece rubber track which is just fine as most of it is covered anyways, but 1 thing that bugged me was trying to get the main gun attached the way the instructions showed. It was showing flush and no gaps, I have a decent gap to fill along the top before painting but that was the only major problem. It was a few bucks cheaper than Tamiya buy I'd pay a few bucks more for a little extra detail and equipment. Still recommend, good for beginners or experienced builders, this is a sherman after all and can never have too many of these! I have a top view pick to show the gap, along with other pics from all sides, just need to paint and put on display!

Solid model, didn't have any issues when I assembled the kit. No missing parts and pretty decent detail. I would recommend this kit if you have any interest in WW2 American armor!

 
"Very Pleased,"

Quik shipment as usual. I opened the box to this kit and could tell it was quality. Haven't had a chance to assemble but I know I'll not be disappointed
