Developed primarily for ground troop support, the 105mm equipped M4A3 was added to the Sherman series. Now, Tamiya presents a 1/35 scale replication accurate down to the casting of the round gun turret. The battle postures of 3 ground troop figures and the steady gaze of the tank commander convey a sense of tension felt during battle. The kit comes complete with heavy M2 machine gun and a variety of accessories. Pair this model up with the 75mm Gun Late Production version for creating the perfect diorama.
This tank model uses poly-caps for the raising and lowering of the gun. Gunners hatch and machine gun clamp are included as separately molded parts. Realistic tank tracks come with rubber pads (paintable) for enhanced authenticity.

Three infantry figures from the Ardennes battlefields and the tank commander figure bring a "midst of battle" atmosphere to the kit. Ammunition boxes and ration cases are also included to enhance detail.

Decals are included to recreate one of three tank types. Recommended paints: TS-5 Olive Drab. This exciting kit is sure to be a welcomed addition to any of the U.S. Army vehicles in Tamiya's extensive 1/35 scale MM collection.
