"Really nice, enjoyable kit"
seahawksfan1200
Recently got back to the hobby Step away from cars for a moment and built this one. The first Tamiya i ever built was the motorized easy8 Sherman. I thought it was great until i bought the M3 Lee and M3 Stuart. Wow what a difference in detail especially for kits back in those days (the 70s). Then i bought this kit and though i had built other Shermans from other companies thru the years where the details really improved immensely, this kit STILL wowed me so many extra parts (which is nice because i'm basically starting all over again collecting Sherman spare parts). It does have its cons but, to me they aren't a big deal, since the two major ones are fixable. These are: The Classy Peg and Caballero Decal aren't mirror images of the left and right so. you have one correct side and one wrong side. the fix, don't use them or make your own corrected ones (you'll find how to's on youtube for making decals). The second (which is common for Tamiya armor, is no sponson. I have no clue why, even through all these years, they continue to do this? Don't they know you can see thru the tracks to the other side? I'm sure a lot of modelers have asked them about it. But, again no big deal. Just buy styrene sheets and make your own, besides it might give you ideas to scratch build an interior i'm not too nit-picky about other details you may find in books about a fresh factory built Sherman since in combat (i'm a US Army veteran), maintenance crews will use any good parts available from a disabled Sherman and one might have actually existed in the field but was destroyed. Also, factories will use older parts when they run out of the newer ones. Again this happens in the field so, it wouldn't a surprise to see a Sherman with different sets of road wheels on a bogie. This i think adds interest in a model (which again would happen in real life). so just enjoy your build and don't be afraid to be creative, especially with this Tamiya kit

"Finest American tank model I have ever built"
lonesomecrow22
This model has the most options of any American tank model I've experienced. There are many accessories to include with the tank (such as ration boxes, jerry cans, oil cans, spare track, ammunition boxes, and supply packs), so an enhanced diorama is possible without buying separate accessory kits. The tank itself is detailed perfectly with options for the late version road wheels or for the mid-production version. There are two commander cupola options, mid- or late production. The three versions provided in this kit (Caballero, #50 and Classy Peg) makes it tempting to buy twice more so I can take advantage of the two I opted not to use. My favorite part of this kit is the included figures. Not only are there figures for the 4 pictured on the box (3 infantry and 1 tank commander), but there are several bonus figures. There are actually 2 replicas of the command figure in the box picture. I was able to use the second one for another tank model that came without crew figures. There is another command figure, different from the one pictured on the box. There is also a bust of a third command figure. As if that weren't enough, there are 2 busts of a driver figure. They are identical, but what a nice way to supply crew figures to other, unmanned tank model kits. This model kit has not only made a great diorama for my collection, but has also enhanced some of my other U.S. tank dioramas by supplying spare crew figures. I recommend this model kit with all enthusiasm. M. Stilwell

 
"This is my favorite tank that I have built so far."
cvanzant86
I really enjoyed building this model. It is good quality, highly detailed, and good quality plastic that doesn't require primer before painting. The pieces fit together nicely with little manipulation, filing, or flash removal. The tracks are moveable as long as you are careful when gluing the wheel pieces together. I hand painted this model rather than air brushing but either technique would work well. Make sure to apply the decals to the tank prior to gluing on the attachments as there is some overlap. The only think I would change is that I painted this with Tamaiya Olive Drab which is darker green than the actual color of most of these tanks. Testors olive drab is closer to the authentic color.

 
"Truly a fun build"
Chris (Montana)
Now the rivet counters types might not think highly of these kits but its a great platform to build out of the box or to try your hand at scratch building and modifying. I decided to push it as far as I can so I shaved off all the molded handles and scratch built those, scratch building the exhaust deflector and rear skirts on either side of it. Used styrene to replicate the sand skirt mounting strips, built up the right side of the turret with putty for a better profile and blended the pistol port, add styrene rods w texture for better welds on the hull, built up the welds on lift hooks, drilled weep holes around filler caps etc. The list can go on, as I said a nice easy build or a great platform to develop your skills by researching and adding lots of easy DIY details.
