This entry in Tamiya's 1/48 armor series accurately captures the shapely outlines of this curvy Sherman, with plenty of optional parts included for the drive sprockets, road wheels, transmission cover, air cleaners, and gun mantlet that allow you to model many different M4A1 variations. Applique armor and separately molded tools are also included (tools are not molded on the hull as in the M4 and Firefly kits). Like the other kits in this series, the lower hull is die-cast. See more at the Tamiya site.
NOTE: Completed model shown in photos below was built using Tamiya's 1/48 Jerry Can Set as well as various photo-etched and scratchbuilt parts not included in the Tamiya M4A1 kit.
