so Italeri's venerable M4A1 76(W) kit
has been eclipsed by the more recent Dragon offering. But if you're like me, you
probably have one or two of these sitting on your shelf. The kit comes with the
earlier, less common round air cleaners. If you are of the mind to build an Operation
Cobra Sherman, you'll want to replace those air cleaners with the later boxy version,
as provided here by Formations. Not pictured above is a carrier with six securing
lugs to hold the bottom covers in place. The set also includes the early pattern
exhaust and a pair grouser storage vent covers (you'll need to remove the kit's
covers and supply your own mesh screen).
air cleaners also can be used for Italeri's M7 Priest. Overall, this is a good
investment for those looking for improved accuracy.
