"AWESOME....THE BEST M4 TAMIYA HAS DONE..MADE IT INTO FURY TANK"
drumdude48
THIS BY FAR IS THE BEST M4 SHERMAN THAT TAMIYA HAS DONE. EVEN THE BODIES AND WHEELS WERE STRONG AND VERY EASY TO PUT TOGETHER. I TOOK AN ITALERI (FURY) TANK PIECES AND USED THEM ON THE TAMIYA EASY 8. WHY?? BECAUSE THE ITALERI WAS ALL WRONG. PLUS PARTS WERE NOT MADE WELL OR CORRECT TO THE TANK USED ON THE MOVIE FURY. SO I TOOK A TAMIYA EASY 8 AND TURNED IT INTO THE FURY REPLICA FROM THE MOVIE. NEEDLESS TO SAY I WILL BUILD NO MORE ITALERI MODELS..TAMIYA IS THE BEST HANDS DOWN. I WATCHED THE MOVIE 5 TIMES AND DID THE CLOSEST I COULD COME TO REPLICATING THE FURY TANK. I PRETTY MUCH JUST USED A MACHINE GUN MOUNT, GERMAN HELMET WITH GAS MASK, TRACKS FROM THE ITALERI TANK. I WISH TAMIYA WOULD DO ANOTHER FURY TANK. I THINK THEY DID BACK IN 2015 BUT DISCONTINUED. SO, I DID IT THE OTHER WAY..LOL WELL WORTH THE TIME AND MONEY.

"Another Fine Kit"
knightstalkr62
This was my second Tamiya kit, and my first military build. It is hard to find anything to dislike about a Tamiya. Clean parts. Clear instructions. Nice tolerance between parts. Yes, you'll pay a little more for a Tamiya, but their kits are worth the extra money. One issue I encountered, which was in no way Tamiya's fault, was that the instructions called for XF-84 Dark Iron paint. My hobby store didn't keep anything above X-80. I looked XF-84 up on Tamiya's site, but didn't want to pay shipping charges for a couple dollops of paint. Once I realized it was used on the spare links for the tracks, and my tracks would be muddied up so you couldn't see the color, I just used Testors Gun Metal for the spare links. The only other issue was that there were two small pieces that were supposed to go on the inner front fenders. I didn't have enough clearance between the tracks and the body of the tank to position them correctly so I just left them off. It still looks nice without them. The third issue was all on me! I got ahead of myself and put mud on the body where the decals belonged, so I had to use some creative techniques and just use the part of the decal that would show from behind the mud. If you choose to dirty it up, remember: DECALS FIRST! All in all this was a very enjoyable kit.

 
"Easy 8 was just that, Easy to build."

This is a very well molded kit with excellent fit. I really enjoyed building this tank. Everything was as it should be and the Commander with his infantry is a nice touch. This E8 tank was a very different tank from its predecessor in that the suspension made it ride Easy. This is well shown in this kit. The wheels and tracks went together well and work as designed. All in all, a very nice model. I would recommend this kit to anyone that enjoys mechanical wartime hardware and history. I am now hooked on tanks. Next tank model please !

 
"This is a HUGE step up from previous Shermans"
Cjski21
Tamiya has outdone themselves with this one. This is a new tool and it shows. The kit is superb. The fit is excellent and I am so glad the bathtub hull is a thing of the past. The main gun's barrel is slide molded so it looks sharp and is simple to get looking really good. This kit still has the rubber band tracks but the Sherman normally had quite a bit of tension in the tracks so there really is no need to create any sag. Of all the Sherman kits out there, this is simply one of the best there is. There are no needless steps just to increase the part count and the kit looks excellent. Tamiya has been the best in the game for years and this is one of their best to date.
