the box does not identify the specific type of Sherman this is set is for, three
of the sections sandbag the sides and glacis of your typical M4A3 hull, and two
parts are shaped for the T-23 turret. So, use this to dress up your M4A3(76)W,
or split it among other suitable tanks.
particular type of supplemental armor I have not seen before: wooden bracing over
a second interior layer of wood, which possibly could be filled with sand or concrete.
The side armor is topped off with sand bags that are slightly smaller than those
piled on the glacis and surrounding the turret. There's nothing particuarly wrong
with the different sized bags, as they were sourced from various outlets back
in the states, manufacturers in the UK, or from local businesses as the Allies
pushed through France and into Germany.
casting of these parts is very crisp, and, unlike some other resin products, there
are no large pour plugs to remove. The parts fit well on top of the DML M4A3(76)W
hull and turret and Tamiya M4A3 hull.
